Sylvia Group Seminar
Benefits Compliance Update: PFML and New HRAs
On Wednesday, September 18, Sylvia Group will host Benefits Compliance Update: PFML and New HRAs, our annual seminar on Massachusetts employee benefits compliance. Once again, due to the popularity of this event, the seminar will take place in the Education Center of New Bedford's famed Buttonwood Park Zoo, which offers plentiful free parking, as well as ample meeting space.
The seminar will feature benefits attorney and health care reform expert Richard Szczebak, owner of the employee benefits specialty practice RAS Law, P.C., and contract legal adviser to the Massachusetts Health Connector. Attorney Szczebak will address current compliance issues facing employers, including:
- Massachusetts Paid Family and Medical Leave — Employee contributions begin October 1.
- New types of HRA benefits — Effective January 1, 2020, two new types of Health Reimbursement Arrangements (HRAs) available to employers. We'll discuss the final regulations issued in June and help you determine whether these new HRAs are useful to you.
