    What to expect in Employee Benefits in 2018 and beyond

    Workplace Application:


    Compliance obligations for today’s employers are overwhelming. Unfortunately, too many employers have responded with a “wait and see” approach toward compliance. Considering the volume and volatility of proposed legislative changes, the attitude is understandable – but could prove costly. Confusion and delay is a recipe for disaster, resulting in compliance penalties and even loss of coverage for employees.

    Liliana’s presentation will help plan sponsors and employers take a much-needed deep breath. By reviewing the past year, Liliana will guide attendees to the present to determine where they are now in terms of their employee benefits compliance. A review of what’s trending will help attendees develop long-term strategy for the future to stay ahead of the compliance curve.
