When the DOL Comes to Visit
We all know that the IRS audits retirement plans and at any point might disqualify us all! But what do we understand about dealing with the Department of Labor and its Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA)? This presentation will acquaint you with the ins and outs of DOL investigation and enforcement activity, from the side of the private practitioner. Don't beware ... be aware!
