ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
This workshop focuses on the changing environment of all employee benefits (pension, health, Workers’ Compensation, etc.) New and revised laws and regulations, along with ways to address the continued increasing cost of employee benefits, will be addressed in an effort to provide school agencies with the information and tools to better manage the full spectrum of employee benefits. We will also be covering the provisions of employee leaves and the implementation challenges that local education agencies can face.
This year there will be expanded focus on the current and upcoming provisions of federal health care reform—especially the requirement for employers to provide adequate, affordable coverage starting in 2014 or pay a penalty, the "pay or play" provision. All school employers will need information on the calculations and potential penalties in order to make management decisions in preparation for this part of the new law.
In an era of tough economic times and tight budgets, employee benefit management is an increasingly important aspect of school finance. In order for school agencies to make sound financial decisions, this workshop will provide ideas for improving the budgetary impact of employee benefit programs and improving management of employee leaves. This workshop will provide superintendents, presidents/chancellors, assistant superintendents, vice presidents/chancellors, board members, directors of fiscal services, risk managers, and policy makers with the financial management tools they need to evaluate their current employee benefit and leave programs and move toward efficiency and best practices.
This workshop is cosponsored by School Services of California, Inc. (SSC) and Fiscal Crisis and Management Assistance Team (FCMAT) and is presented by Sheila G. Vickers, SSC's Vice President and Suzanne Speck, SSC's Director, Management Consulting Services.
