This presentation will educate the viewer on the overall structure of the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employee Benefits Security Administration (“EBSA”) with an emphasis on EBSA’s enforcement strategy. The program will focus on the types of investigations EBSA conducts, the sources of those cases and the steps involved in the investigation. More specifically, the presentation will elaborate on the types of documents requested, the interview process and EBSA’s voluntary compliance letters issued to ERISA plans once our findings have been made. In particular, the presentation will concentrate on group health plan investigations and EBSA’s current national initiatives for health enforcement, including: mental health parity, emergency services, and health service providers’ self-dealing.
