The seemingly constant changes to employee benefits laws and regulations can be overwhelming for a Human Resources department. Compliance is an ongoing process, and we provide a variety of resources to help.

Keeping Up to Date and Staying Out of Trouble

When you work with us, you’ll enjoy timely compliance training, materials and guidance pertaining to benefits administration, leave management and policies and procedures.  

Compliance Audits

Audits are provided to review current policies, practices and procedures. Each audit is followed by a summary of findings, including personalized documents and action items, and a personalized implementation plan.

Research

Our compliance practice team help take the confusion out of constant legislative changes by providing simple, direct explanations of the laws and what steps need to be taken to adhere to the regulations.

Checklists

Proof of process is a key factor with any governmental agency. We provide checklists to ensure the same process is followed for each employee; at hire, at Open Enrollment and at termination.

Education and Training

Training modules are available for all the major benefit law areas. These modules include quizzes to test comprehension of the materials. Onsite training for topics such as FMLA, HIPAA, PPACA, Harassment and MA Data Privacy is available to clients and their staff.

Documentation

With ever-increasing employee notification requirements on both a federal level and a state level, we provide personalized documents for the various laws to help you get the most out of notifications.   

Ongoing Support

With the assistance of an ERISA attorney, you’re able to contact us with ‘real world’ situations. Guidance is provided to help you navigate the potential liability associated with various decisions.

5500 Creation

 Every employer with more than 100 participants on the first day of the plan year is required to complete an annual 5500 filing. We’ll create signature-ready 5500 and applicable Summary Annual Reports. Assistance is also available to remedy delinquent filing concerns.
