September 10, 2008 (PLANSPONSOR.com) - The U.S. Department of Labor's Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA) has announced additional sessions of its compliance workshops.

According to an announcement, EBSA will hold two free workshops in two separate locations - to help employers, pension plan administrators and other benefit professionals comply with federal employee benefits law.  

The workshops will be held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on September 18, and Silver Spring, Maryland on September 16.

The Voluntary Fiduciary Correction Program Workshop, scheduled from 9:30 to11:30 a.m. EDT (in both locations, albeit on different dates), will offer comprehensive information and one-on-one help on how to apply to and use the Voluntary Fiduciary Correction Program (VFCP) to self-correct violations of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA).   The program is designed to make it easier for benefit managers and professionals to comply with ERISA and avoid enforcement action by the Labor Department

The workshop is open to employers, accountants, fiduciaries, third party administrators, attorneys and anyone else concerned about responsibilities in administering employee benefit plans.   One-on-one assistance will be available after the workshop.
