Employee benefit plans and the laws that govern them are inherently complex and constantly evolving, and the front-end compliance aspects of employee benefits have never been as scrutinized as they are now.In his presentation titled “Employee Benefits for Contingent Workers,” McAfee & Taft employee benefits attorney Brandon Long discusses new developments in employee benefits for independent contractors, consultants, and other non-permanent workers before a national audience. His topics include:

  • Regulatory developments concerning employee benefits for contingent workers
  • Use of contingent workforce and its impact on employee benefit plans
  • Affordable Care Act penalties
  • Use of ACA safe harbor to avoid penalties
  • Allocating risk to staffing agencies via indemnification provisions

This two-day national conference, sponsored by the American Conference Institute, is designed to assist plan fiduciaries, sponsors, administrators, advisors and insurers in maintaining legal compliance by avoiding poor and inconsistent drafting, design, implementation, and administration of employee benefit plans.
