Need two hours of ethics education? Why not spend the time in a practically-based and entertaining session with Ilene Ferenczy and “The Ferenczy Benefit Players”? We’ll cover Circular 230 Rules and how they apply to benefits practices and practitioners. This session is intended to provide participants with the tools needed to recognize, evaluate, and reasonably solve ethical conundrums.
Get answers to questions like:
- What do you do with takeover clients who misstated information on Form 5500 in the prior year?
- Can you hold back work from a client who hasn’t paid you?
- What do you do if you’re an ERPA and your boss is not…and he/she wants to do something unethical?
