Staying on top of the latest health & safety regulations, training requirements, CSA Standards and industry best practices can be overwhelming and very confusing. And then there are the costs, in time and money, of doing the "right thing!"
Compounding that issue is the simple fact that many HR professionals are being asked to wear yet another hat - and assume the mantle of the Health & Safety "expert" in their place of business.
In this tongue-in-cheek presentation, HASCO Vice-President Derek Bumstead, navigates you through the wrong ways to approach health & safety in your workplace - from the attitudes of the people at the top of the corporate food chain, to the culture of health & safety in each workplace, to the training ALL Ontario companies and organizations are required to provide.
Be careful though! Because along the way, you might discover that the "right way" is actually the best way for your company...and you could save significant money in the process.
The added benefit of having safer, more loyal workers is just the icing on the cake.
Mergers and Acquisitions as well as large lending transactions raise a host of employee benefits issues, many of which can be avoided with proactive attention. Recent case law developments (such as the Sun Capital Partners case) underscore the importance of spotting and handling potential employee benefits issues well before the “deal” is about to close. This panel will walk attendees through the top employee benefits issues that commonly arise in an M&A transaction (including 401(k) and other qualified plans, health and welfare plans and executive compensation plans) and give practical tips for handling these issues on a proactive basis, starting with due diligence and continuing through and after the deal has closed.
One of the many items on the agenda of the Department of Labor when they appear on your doorstep will be review of the Investment Committee that governs the workings of your company’s qualified retirement plan.
This webinar will provide you with yet another positive and proactive path you can follow to be prepared in the event the Department of Labor pays you a visit.
This webinar will provide you, from two different perspectives….from experienced legal counsel and from an experienced investment
representative….as to the necessity of creating and operating an Investment Committee for your company’s qualified retirement plan.
You will also learn the specifications of the Charter for your Investment Committee which will allow the Committee and its members to perform their mission in accordance with the (seemingly) ever changing rules and regulations governing fiduciary responsibility.
Are you a workplace retirement plan fiduciary? Do you have direct responsibility for the daily management and oversight of your company’s 401(k) plan? Are you comfortable with your level of knowledge of fiduciary best practices and prudent plan governance? Are you looking for ways to ensure your plan is run in the best possible ways? Is your retirement plan ‘advisor’ really looking out for your best interests or their own? Do you understand how recent regulation and court settlements are directly impacting your own plan?
Join us for a one-hour discussion that will provide specific actionable items to help protect you and other plan fiduciaries while improving the plan participant’s retirement readiness.
The affordable care act requires large employers to offer robust and affordable health insurance to all full time employees. For employers with large populations that have previously been ineligible for benefits, this poses a significant problem and challenge. Pay hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars in fines, or spend hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars on a new health insurance program?
A third option exists that could solve this problem for many employers. This option is the “Skinny Plan.” A program specifically designed to meet all of the benefits and affordability requirements set forth by the ACA, but designed to cost little enough to where employers have little to no financial liability could be a game changer for industries being hit hardest by the play or pay aspect of the Affordable Care Act.
This webinar will teach you everything you need to know about using the “Skinny Plan” as a means to completely remove any and all financial liability facing your organization as a result of PPACA.
