Drinker Biddle held the latest Benefits & Breakfast, our series of in-person morning meetings taking place throughout 2019 in our offices around the country.

These roundtable presentations feature lawyers from our national Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation Group discussing new and emerging issues.

Topic for the February Breakfast:

Our first presentation of 2019 focused on new developments and hot-button issues that employers need to know as the new year gets underway. Key topics included:

  • An update on issues affecting retirement plans, including recent IRS guidance on hardship withdrawals and student loans.
  • The DOL’s plans to issue a new iteration of the fiduciary rule.
  • Health and welfare plan updates, including what you need to know about the Affordable Care Act after the Texas ruling.
  • Updates on executive compensation issues, and lessons learned from recent plan litigation.
