There’s a retirement crisis in America, and the statistics are grim. Most corporations moved to 401(k) plans as pensions proved to be too costly. But now these costs have been moved to employees who are burdened with more risk than ever. And employees rarely have the same level of expertise as professional pension plan managers. A little known option in many plans — the self-directed brokerage account — provides a new way to 401(k).
Please join us for a live webinar on taking a personalized fiduciary approach to the 401(k) plan. We’ll discuss ways for employees to mitigate retirement risks with the help of fiduciary financial planners. We’ll review a disciplined 5-step fiduciary financial planning process that places client objectives first from their 401(k) to employee benefits and tax strategies.

The Obama administration announced it will delay until 2015 the employer mandate of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA).
But employers can’t simply tune out until 2015. The Act’s employer mandate has been deferred, not repealed. All other elements of the ACA remain in effect with their original deadlines, including a variety of requirements that take effect on January 1, 2014. And insurance marketplaces will be open for business on October 1, 2013 -- less than 3 months from now -- in time for open enrollment. Smart companies are using the delay of the employer mandate to get a head start on their compliance efforts.
Join our Webinar on July 24, with leading ACA expert Alden J. Bianchi, author of "What Every Business Needs to Know About the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act."
In this webinar, you will learn:
- The latest developments and answers to frequently asked questions about the ACA

- What new data must be reported to the government (and when)

The buzz around social media as a recruiting tool has exploded over the past few years. In today’s uncertain economy, organizations are revamping their existing talent acquisition strategies and technology options - and social media is taking center stage. Every organization is looking for integration from their existing technology with social networking sites such as LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook.

Everyone knows that retail stores, hotels, and banks have to be accessible to the disabled. Thousands of lawsuits are filed every year, and millions are paid in attorneys' fees and settlements, where disabled patrons allege they cannot enter an establishment, or once they get in, cannot shop or use the restroom, because of barriers to access. Plaintiffs and the Department of Justice are now looking beyond brick and mortar buildings and are seeking accessibility to company websites, particularly those websites where business is transacted. Cases are being filed, and money is being paid in damages, settlements and attorney’s fees, where websites cannot be used by those who are blind, deaf, or have other disabilities. The DOJ is pursuing actions in this area, and has already published two consent decrees involving the gas/retail the hotel industries, which, in part, involve website accessibility. The DOJ has also recently issued proposed rules concerning website accessibility.
This intersection of emerging technologies and emerging law presents interesting issues. Some courts have recognized the possibility that ADA Title III may apply to company websites, and is not merely limited to physical locations. The DOJ recently joined the debate by requesting public comment on questions related to the application of ADA Title III to company websites, including what the standards should be when measuring whether a website is accessible to the disabled.
The webinar will cover the following:
* ADA Title III background and current lawsuits
* Website accessibility as the next wave of lawsuits
