Claims under Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) are rising. The DOJ received 6,391 accessibility complaints in 2015—a 40% increase over 2014.

Who is the best defense against fraud and loss at your Institution? Tellers on your frontline!
Tellers deal with checks every day; however, if they don’t deal with them in accordance with the “law of checks” – that is, the Articles 3 and 4 of the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) - your institution could face unnecessary headaches and financial loss. Use this webinar to arm yourself and your staff with vital UCC information and examples.
The Gist: Financial Institutions that engage in transactions involving money generated by marijuana-related activity are subject to criminal liability for failure to identify or report financial transactions which implicate violations of the U.S. Controlled Substances Act (“CSA”).
However, there is real potential for community banks and credit unions to offer their services to marijuana businesses. This is because bigger national banks continue to close out the last of their existing cannabis-related accounts. Although your Institution would still take on risk by providing services - which, technically, would violate federal law - if you comply with the Cole Memo and FinCEN Guidance, then this could be a lucrative opportunity.

We will discuss guidance and other publications issued by the CFPB that will help facilitate your Institution's implementation of the rule. We will also review mortgage lenders' obligations under the TRID rules to track and monitor tolerance levels.

Having a plan in place will help your institution deal with these disasters with confidence and in an effective and efficient manner.
