DOL Issues Temporary Enforcement Relief for Fiduciary Rule Non-Compliance


Posted on March 16, 2017, by Fred Reish in DOL Activity, fiduciary. Comments Off on DOL Issues Temporary Enforcement Relief for Fiduciary Rule Non-Compliance

The DOL has published Field Assistance Bulletin 2017-1, which provides some limited temporary relief while the industry waits to find out if the Fiduciary Rule will be applicable April 10. The Drinker Biddle Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation Group has written a Client Alert, in which we discuss the two scenarios in which the DOL will not take enforcement action for non-compliance with the Fiduciary Rule during this period of uncertainty. We also provide suggestions on how advisers and financial institutions should proceed while we wait to see what happens with the Fiduciary Rule.
