The Treasury and DOL take on John Grisham

Now that your summer reading club has come to an almost assuredly emotional end, you’ve probably been searching for something else to flip through while kicking back and unwinding when you’re sitting on…the armchair in your den.

Well, you’re in luck, because I have some thrilling Autumn reading for you this season. The United States Treasury and Department of Labor (DOL) have jointly published the 2011-2012 regulatory agenda for employee benefits. (I know. I can hardly contain myself, either.)

In the Treasury and DOL’s new-edge-of-your-seat thriller, you’ll be enthralled with intrigue by tales of impending:

  • electronic disclosure through the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA)
  • prohibited transaction exemption procedures
  • notice, timing, and appeals of claims procedure
  • definition of “fiduciary”
  • and murder!

Okay, maybe not murder. But it’s possible it could get your blood pumping for one reason or another.
