Webinar Offers Tips for Meeting Compliance Communications and Provides HRCI Credit for Human Resource Professionals
Date:8/1/2009

Increasing challenges posed by more complex compliance regulations and rapidly shifting benefits programs.

Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) August 1, 2009 -- Member Firms of United Benefit Advisors, LLC (UBA), one of the nation's top five employee benefits advisory organizations, announced that registration for the August webinar titled "Electronic Distribution of SPDs and other Participant Communications" is open to all employers by way of the UBA website, http://www.benefits.com.

As e-mail, IM, and Twitter become the norm, and with "green" being the color of the day, benefit plan sponsors and administrators are naturally interested in meeting their participant communication obligations via electronic means. Unfortunately, the applicable statutes and regulations have not kept up with reality. In fact, for many participants and beneficiaries, it is still easier to send pieces of paper than to jump through the hoops needed to allow for electronic dissemination of SPDs, forms, and notices. This presentation will address the current IRS and Department of Labor guidance in this area, with practical suggestions on how to minimize the amount of paper used in plan administration.

"Keeping on top of benefits and employment law is no easy task. Our goal is to help employers act in accordance with government regulations by summarizing key issues and presenting information on a timely and regular basis," said Dutton. Many of the UBA employer webinars are Pre-Approved for HRCI (HR Certification Institute) credit and are excellent educational opportunities for employers looking to enhance their professional HR status.

The Employer Webinar Series features frequent presentations by the attorneys of Spencer Fane Britt & Browne LLP, one of the premier law firms in the Midwest that serves a diverse base of local and national companies.

Webinars are generally scheduled for the second Tuesday of every month at 2 p.m. Eastern time and have included time-sensitive topics such as Administering the 65% COBRA Premium Subsidy, Requirements Under the 2009 Stimulus Package, Changes to ADA, and FMLA regulation updates. Effects of CHIP Expansion on Employer Health Plans is scheduled for May 12, and Expected Changes to the Employee Free Choice Act.

"These webinars are an exceptional value, especially for those employers interested in continuing education opportunities because our webinars will be submitted for HRCI (HR Certification Institute) recertification," said Dan Bacon, UBA Director, Analytics and Training. "What's more, employers can obtain a 30 percent discounted price simply by contacting their local UBA Member Firm," said Bacon. To participate in the UBA Employer Webinars or for more information about the UBA Compliance Solutions Program, visit www.benefits.com to find your local UBA Member Firm, or click on the "Resources" tab on the home page.
