Fiduciary Responsibility for ERISA Plans

The Employer Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) introduced the concept of fiduciary responsibility for those overseeing and dealing with private employee benefit plans. This course is designed to identify benefit plan fiduciaries, their roles, and their duties. Breach of fiduciary duty can lead to personal fines and lawsuits. Plan sponsors and trustees are at risk of being audited by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) or Internal Revenue Service (IRS), paying fines or being sued by plan participants. This course is designed to help fiduciaries understand and carry out their responsibilities faithfully.
