Default Electronic Disclosure by Employee Pension Benefit Plans Under ERISA
Document Number: 2020-10951
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-05-27
Agency: Employee Benefits Security Administration, Department of Labor
The Department of Labor is adopting in this document a new, additional safe harbor for employee benefit plan administrators to use electronic media, as a default, to furnish information to participants and beneficiaries of plans subject to the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA). The rule allows plan administrators who satisfy specified conditions to provide participants and beneficiaries with a notice that certain disclosures will be made available on a website, or to furnish disclosures via email. Individuals who prefer to receive disclosures on paper can request paper copies of disclosures and opt out of electronic delivery entirely. The Department expects the rule to enhance the effectiveness of ERISA disclosures and significantly reduce the costs and burden associated with furnishing many of the recurring and most costly disclosures. In addition to benefiting workers, this rule will immediately assist employers and the retirement plan industry as they face a number of economic challenges due to the COVID-19 emergency, including logistical and other impediments to compliance with ERISA's disclosure requirements.

Partial Lists of Establishments that Lack or May Have a “Retail Concept” Under the Fair Labor Standards Act
Document Number: 2020-10250
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-05-19
Agency: Wage and Hour Division, Employment Standards Administration, Department of Labor
Section 7(i) of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA or Act) provides an exemption from the Act's overtime compensation requirement for certain commissioned employees employed by a retail or service establishment. In this final rule, the Department of Labor (Department) withdraws the ``partial list of establishments'' that it previously viewed as having ``no retail concept'' and categorically unable to qualify as retail or service establishments eligible to claim the section 7(i) exemption; and the ``partial list of establishments'' that, in its view, ``may be recognized as retail'' for purposes of the exemption. Removing these lists promotes consistent treatment when evaluating section 7(i) exemption claims by treating all establishments equally under the same standards and permits the reevaluation of an industry's retail nature as developments progress over time. This withdrawal will also reduce confusion, as the list of establishments that ``may be recognized as retail'' did not necessarily affect the analysis as to whether any particular establishment was, in fact, retail.
