Welcome to LawShelf’s video-course on the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, better known as ERISA. This course focuses on the ERISA rules governing retirement accounts, welfare plans and other employee benefits. We will look at the employer’s responsibilities under ERISA and the nuts and bolts of ensuring the compliance of qualified plans with federal regulation.
