This Employer Education Guide outlines CAAT Plan training sessions organized by core areas of responsibility. Education sessions are conducted in webinar format and most are recorded for access at any time. The education program is part of the Employer Attestation of Compliance.
Publications / Resources
Employer representatives will notify their CAAT Plan Employer PA when they have attended or taken a session. This will become part of the employer training record which will be provided to employers for the annual attestation to show employer participation in this education program.
In addition to the formal education sessions, ongoing education takes the form of:
- Regular employer updates in webinar format, recommended for all employers
- Employer News: monthly emails sent to all employers
- Onsite visits by CAAT Plan representatives, optional
- Monthly status updates with Employer PAs
These sessions help ensure that employees are enrolled, based on their employment status and in accordance with Plan rules. Visit Employee Enrolment.
These sessions focus on contributions deducted from members and remitted to the Plan according to the appropriate calculation guidelines. Visit Contributions.
These sessions help employers collect complete and accurate member and non-member data, and report them to the Plan as required. Visit Data Reporting.
Publications and Resources
These sessions help ensure members receive accurate information and up-to-date documentation about Plan provisions. Visit Publications and Resources.
