EU will push Apple, Google to treat app developers fairly

  EU will push Apple, Google to treat app developers fairly Spotify and other services aren't happy with being at the mercy of internet giants like Apple and Google. The regulator pointed to instances where companies pulled products with little warning, limited access to your data or didn't offer enough transparency with their search rankings. Accordingly, any laws would both set conditions for fair practice, create a system to resolve squabbles and boost transparency. If Spotify thinks an app store operator is holding it back, it might not have to choose between a grin-and-bear-it attitude or a messy court battle.

The provincial Liberal government announced today that it would introduce legislation in the fall to make that change and others that it says will help keep defined benefit pension plans sustainable.

Single-employer defined benefit plans currently require funding on a solvency basis if they are anything less than 100 per cent funded, but the government is planning to lower that level to 85 per cent.

That means if a pension plan is 85 per cent funded and is forced to wind up immediately, there would only be enough to pay 85 cents on the dollar to meet the plan's obligations.

Proposed Amendment to Ontario Regulation 178/11 under the Pension Benefits Act (PBA) - Solvency Funding Relief for Certain Public Sector Pension Plans. Changes To The Rules For Ontario Locked-In Accounts - O. Reg. 239/09.

We are writing to you with respect to an issue of significant concern for many of ACPM’s members—the solvency funding rules for defined benefit (DB) pension plans. We are requesting that the Ontario Government enact further temporary solvency relief measures

Employers would have five years to make special solvency payments to get back to 85 per cent if their plan falls below that threshold.

That move would give employers relief as defined benefit plans face challenges including historically low interest rates, but at the same time the government is also strengthening other employer pension obligations.

If plans can't meet a going concern test of being able to fully fund their present obligations, they will have 10 years to make special payments to get to the appropriate funding, down from the current 15 years.

The government will also be requiring employers to fund a reserve within their plans in order to manage risk and keep benefits secure.
