2024-01-29 DOL Updates Civil Monetary Penalties for 2024

The Department of Labor has announced updated penalty amounts for violations assessed a penalty after January 15, 2024.  Below is a table of some of the civil monetary penalties relevant to employee benefit plans.  The DOL can waive penalties or assess lower penalties than these when they determine the employer has acted in good faith to promptly identify and correct errors it discovers.  We’ll use some acronyms in the table, but you can certainly reach out to your IMA Benefits team if you would like to discuss any of these.
