LCW Recording: Compensation Earnable and Pensionable Compensation
October 13, 2015
CalPERS agencies need to be aware of the strict rules that determine whether an item of pay is compensation earnable (Classic members) or pensionable compensation (New members). CalPERS focuses on this issue in their audits of agencies and in its review of individual retirees. This webinar will cover the components of compensation earnable/pensionable compensation and how to draft MOU language that not only accomplishes the agency's goals of a pay item being reportable or not. The webinar will also show you the language you need to help protect the agency from liability in the future.
LCW Recording: Preparing for ACA Reporting as the Deadline Approaches
October 20, 2015
The first set of Affordable Care Act reporting forms are due in early 2016 and large employers are anxiously gathering their data to prepare for the upcoming deadlines. Applicable large employers (and employers offering self-insured plans) will need to report certain monthly data from 2015, including the identity of full-time employees and the health coverage offered to those employees. The IRS recently released draft versions of IRS Forms 1095-C, 1094-C, 1095-B, and 1094-B and corresponding draft instructions for reporting 2015 data. The IRS will use the information reported on these forms to determine potential penalties under the Affordable Care Act's shared responsibility provisions and individual mandate. We will discuss these reporting requirements in depth, including who must report, when the reporting is required, the data that must be reported, and available reporting methods. This webinar will also include an in-depth discussion on how to complete the reporting forms, including reporting on COBRA beneficiaries.
