Benefits Compliance are the rules and regulations set forth by the Department of Labor to govern employee benefits and Health and Welfare plans. 

Benefits Compliance usually comprises those things mentioned in ERISA including wrap documents, summary plan descriptions along with the required employee distribution regulations, cafeteria 125 plan documents, COBRA, HIPPA, and all the benefit notices required under the Affordable Care Act. These are things that the government says once you begin to offer employee benefits to at least two or more employees you are required to provide and follow. 

There are state regulations that also make up Benefits Compliance such as State Continuation.
