Preventive Maintenance: Preparing for a DOL Inquiry
Wednesday, April 27, 2022
8:45 – 9:45 am PDT

It is often said that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Are you prepared for a DOL inquiry? Would you like to know what a DOL investigator is looking for before you get the call? In this interactive session, the panelists role-play a DOL investigator, a company CFO who serves as the internal ESOP Trustee and their attorney, to demonstrate what the DOL generally is looking for and how to be prepared to a DOL inquiry. Executives, directors and trustees will all benefit from this session’s insights about being ready for the call and the crucial initial stages of an audit or investigation.

Learning Objectives:

  • Knowing what a DOL investigator will be looking for in an audit or investigation.
  • Knowing what steps to take to be prepared for a DOL audit or investigation before it starts
  • Understanding how to deal with the initial phase of a DOL audit or investigation

If you would like to learn more about the ESOP practice at McDermott, please visit our exhibit booth and do not hesitate to contact any member of our team. Register today.
