About Clark Law Group
Clark Law Group, PLLC, is a small firm focused on litigation in the areas of employee benefits and employment law, representing individuals in connection with retirement, health and disability benefit claims, executive compensation, wage and hour and discrimination law. The firm is located in Washington, DC, but has a national practice in these areas.
The Department of Labor’s (DOL) Fiduciary Rule, which was created under the Obama administration was initially scheduled to be applied last April 10th. However, in response to the call for an “economic and legal analysis” by the current administration, the rule was then issued a 60-day delay. More recently, after numerous delays and rescheduling, the rule finally took effect on June 9, 2017, but with a transition period prior to its full implementation.
Since the rule is already applicable, it is important for businesses to navigate the effects and its potential impacts. Although some of the provisions are expected to be out until January 2018 or later, it is of equal significance to better understand the important elements of the rule and what it means to be a fiduciary providing investment.
In a live webcast, a panel of thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group will discuss the significant and latest issues surrounding the DOL’s Fiduciary Rule. Listen as the speakers bring the audience to a road beyond the basics of the rule and as they delve into the depth-analysis of the significant changes and potential impacts to concerned industries. They will also provide the audience with practical strategies in navigating the changes to the best of their advantages.
Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:
DOL’s Fiduciary Rule – Legal Framework
Best Interest Contract Exemption (BICE)
Transition Period Standards
Timeline and Important Dates
· Potential Impacts to Businesses and Other Concerned Industries
