The Knowledge Group: ERISA Litigation in 2019 and Beyond

April 17, 2019 at 3:00pm4:00pm (EDT)

The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) of 1974 sets forth the guiding principles of employee benefit plans for private and other non-governmental entities. By setting the minimum standards required, ERISA regulates administration and investment practices which have long helped and protected employees from issues and disputes relating to corporate plans.

However, despite its benefits, ERISA is an ever-growing area of law which oftentimes causes confusion among non-expert plan holders, as reflected by the increasing number of litigations every year. This reinforces the need for businesses and their counsel to keep themselves abreast of the recent ERISA litigation updates to put themselves in the best position.
