Business manager presenting financial data to her colleagueIn case you missed them, Shipman & Goodwin’s Pension and Employee Benefits attorneys recently presented complimentary webinars for independent school and college and university audiences.  The webinars reviewed plans governed by ERISA and the Internal Revenue Code, including 401(k) and 403(b) plans, and offered an essential guide for plan administrators.  Due to new Department of Labor regulatory initiatives affecting fiduciaries and increased litigation, more emphasis has been placed on the role and obligations of plan administrators.  In light of recent legal activity, Ira Goldman, author of  A Poet’s Guide to Employee Benefits Law, Richard Cohen and Kelly Smith Hathorn discussed the importance of maintaining access to current 401(k) and 403(b) plan documents, explained plan committee functions, and provided valuable insight to help educational institutions minimize their risk.  The complimentary webinar replays are now available to watch on demand for one year.  Watch the webinar for colleges and universities here.  Watch the webinar for independent schools here.  (Follow the prompts to register when launching the webinar replay on demand.)
