Improving Investment Advice for Workers & Retirees
Document Number: 2020-14261
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-07-07
Agency: Employee Benefits Security Administration, Department of Labor
This document gives notice of a proposed class exemption from certain prohibited transaction restrictions of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended (ERISA), and the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the Code). The prohibited transaction provisions of ERISA and the Code generally prohibit fiduciaries with respect to employee benefit plans (Plans) and individual retirement accounts and annuities (IRAs) from engaging in self-dealing and receiving compensation from third parties in connection with transactions involving the Plans and IRAs. The provisions also prohibit purchasing and selling investments with the Plans and IRAs when the fiduciaries are acting on behalf of their own accounts (principal transactions). This proposed exemption would allow investment advice fiduciaries under both ERISA and the Code to receive compensation, including as a result of advice to roll over assets from a Plan to an IRA, and to engage in principal transactions, that would otherwise violate the prohibited transaction provisions of ERISA and the Code. The exemption would apply to registered investment advisers, broker- dealers, banks, insurance companies, and their employees, agents, and representatives that are investment advice fiduciaries. The exemption would include protective conditions designed to safeguard the interests of Plans, participants and beneficiaries, and IRA owners. The new class exemption would affect participants and beneficiaries of Plans, IRA owners, and fiduciaries with respect to such Plans and IRAs.

Default Electronic Disclosure by Employee Pension Benefit Plans Under ERISA; Correction
Document Number: 2020-13084
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-07-02
Agency: Employee Benefits Security Administration, Department of Labor
This document corrects an inadvertent error in paragraph numbering in the final rule entitled ``Default Electronic Disclosure by Employee Pension Benefit Plans under ERISA,'' published in the Federal Register on May 27, 2020 (85 FR 31884).

Affirmative Action and Nondiscrimination Obligations of Federal Contractors and Subcontractors: TRICARE Providers
Document Number: 2020-11934
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-07-02
Agency: Department of Labor, Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs
The U.S. Department of Labor's (DOL's or Department's) Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) publishes this final rule to amend its regulations pertaining to its authority over TRICARE health care providers. The final rule is intended to increase access to care for uniformed service members and veterans and to provide certainty for health care providers who serve TRICARE beneficiaries. It is also anticipated that this final rule will result in cost savings for TRICARE providers. In a reconsideration of its legal position, the final rule provides that OFCCP lacks authority over Federal health care providers who participate in TRICARE. In the alternative, the final rule establishes a national interest exemption from Executive Order 11246, Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974 for health care providers with agreements to furnish medical services and supplies to individuals participating in TRICARE. Thus, even if OFCCP had authority over Federal health care providers who participate in TRICARE (which this rule clarifies it does not), OFCCP has determined that special circumstances in the national interest justify granting the exemption as it would improve uniformed service members' and veterans' access to medical care, more efficiently allocate OFCCP's limited resources for enforcement activities, and provide greater uniformity, certainty, and notice for health care providers participating in TRICARE. Under the final rule, OFCCP will retain authority over health care providers participating in TRICARE if they hold a separate covered Federal contract or subcontract that is not for providing health care services under TRICARE. TRICARE providers that fall outside of OFCCP's authority under this final rule remain subject to all other Federal, state, and local laws prohibiting discrimination and providing for equal employment opportunity.
