NEW! CalSTRS & CalPERS: Common Issues & Employer Liability - 04/20/2018 - 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

A description of CalSTRS & CalPERS;

Over the past few years, changes to CalSTRS and CalPERS laws and regulations have redefined and changed how CalSTRS and CalPERS view creditable compensation, restructuring of salary and potential spiking issues.  Numerous audits have found that employers are frequently misreporting items of compensation, resulting in improper over payments to retirees, among other things. Such misreporting potentially exposes districts to significant liability, including "re-paying" the system for some or all of the over payments made to the retirees and paying higher employer contribution rates than required.  

This workshop will provide you with guidance on these requirements, offer tips and pointers, and demonstrate best practices to help you avoid audit findings of misreported compensation items.
