States & Localities Posing a Serious Threat to Employee Benefits

**Due to ERIC’s exclusive focus on large employers, this invitation is only open to employers with 10,000 or more employees.**

Is your company prepared for the threat to your employee reward programs?

More than 30 states and dozens of localities have imposed mandates on employers offering benefits, or restricted their ability to provide them -- this year alone.  This growing trend imposes huge burdens on employers, especially those with workers in many states, adding compliance and other costs and restricting their flexibility to offer uniform health, retirement and compensation benefits to their countrywide workforce.

How are you fairing with New York’s and Arizona’s paid leave laws or Oregon’s state retirement plan mandate? Are you prepared for what could be coming in California and Illinois as they are draft their own state retirement plan rules?

Join policy experts from The ERISA Industry Committee and in-house corporate compensation executives for an exclusive analysis of the conflicting and confusing landscape of state and local employee benefit rules and how large employer plan sponsors are coping. Learn what states and localities plan to impose on you in 2018 and discuss how those rules could be shaped or reversed to allow employers to retain the flexibility they need to design and tailor benefits for their unique workforce.
