    A Minefield of Acronyms –

    ERISA, COBRA, HIPAA, FMLA, oh my!

    Employee benefit and welfare plan compliance can be a moving target. This month’s presentation will provide an overview of what’s new after tax reform and what else is new or changing.  The presentation will also cover a refresher on the rules that haven’t changed.

     About the speaker:
