The results of the 2016 elections guarantee that many changes will be made to employee benefits rules and regulations in 2017. Even if Congress needs some time to make changes to the law itself, executive and regulatory actions could move very quickly. Also, as soon as the new Congress takes office, new bills are likely to be introduced that will shed some light on the changes we can expect. This webinar focuses on changes and breaking news that will affect employer sponsored employee benefits.
