Employee Benefits Issues During Mergers and Acquisitions (Webinar)
Mergers and acquisitions create complicated employee benefit administration challenges. The type of business transaction, whether it's a stock or asset sale, can have an impact on compliance obligations such as COBRA.
Transitioning employees to new plans and combining benefits can also create compliance challenges. This session will focus on health and welfare plan issues for employers going through some kind of merger or acquisition.
