Congratulations on making it through one of the most legally and administratively challenging years in employee benefits history. But, as you know, employee benefits never sleep. Ed Bray, senior vice president of compliance with Ascension, provides the 2016 ABC’s of employee benefits – what he calls the annual “just tell me what I need to do” list.
Senior Vice President, Compliance, Ed Bray is interviewed in the June 2015 edition of WorldatWork’s Workspan magazine. The article, Face Your Fears and Be a Good Listener, begins on page 60 in “Profiles in Career Excellence” section, (scroll through the online PDF of the magazine to read the article.)
With health & welfare benefit compliance not only moving a mile a minute, but twisting in many different directions, it’s hard to keep track of what you need to do and when.
To help you stay on track with the “what, when, why, who, and how,” we invite you to join our monthly compliance update webinar. Ed Bray, SVP, Compliance, will review and analyze the top health & welfare benefit compliance stories and issues for the month.
Each webinar will start at 10am PST / 1pm EST and will generally run about 30 minutes.
The webinar dates for the remainder of 2015 are:
- May 21
- June 18
- July 16
- August 20
- September 17
- October 15
- November 19
