HRCI & SHRM Pre-Approved Webinar | Department of Labor Audits: How to Prepare and What to Expect – Your Survival Guide

Posted December 12, 2019 by Megan DiMartino in Uncategorized | 0 comments

The DOL (U.S. Department of Labor) audits of welfare benefit plans are happening with greater frequency for companies of all sizes. Are you ready to spend months preparing to comply with and survive the audit? Did you know the following can be the basis for a DOL Audit:

  • Complaints by welfare benefit plan participants to the Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA), the DOL agency responsible for administering and enforcing the provisions of Title I of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA);
  • Inaccurate or late filings of the Form 5500 Annual Report;
  • National enforcement initiatives investigating compliance with ERISA and the Affordable Care Act (ACA);
  • The transfer of cases from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to the DOL; or
  • Random selection?
