Cheryl L.M.T. Itagaki, Partner and Chair of the Pensions & ERISA Practice, will be presenting at a Hawaii Employers Council webinar on August 25 from 9 am regarding the Employment Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). ERISA is a federal law that protects the interests of employee benefit plans participants and their beneficiaries. It establishes standards of conduct for plan fiduciaries and enforcement provisions to ensure that plan funds are protected, and participants receive their benefits.
This event will cover the background of the law and compliance basics such as Plan Documents and participant notice requirements, Plan Administrator responsibilities, compliance with the IRS, fiduciary responsibilities, and more.
