ERISA: Best Practices Learned from the Courts—New York

Retirement and welfare benefit plans are regulated extensively by the federal government under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). Without proper planning, a company’s generosity toward its employees can create serious liabilities.

Please join Mayer Brown partners for a breakfast session as we provide guidance on recent developments in ERISA law.

We will discuss the latest decisions from the US Supreme Court and lower federal courts and provide guidance on how companies can thoughtfully structure and administer their employee benefits programs to minimize risks.

Our panel will discuss recent cases concerning the following topics:

  • Plan design
  • Rules of fiduciary prudence
  • Employee disclosures
  • Conflicts of interest in claim processing
  • Prospective changes in benefits

The discussion will be of interest to all employers who sponsor ERISA-governed benefit plans, as well as those who provide, service or counsel such plans for employers and insurance companies. This includes in-house lawyers, senior HR and financial officers and directors, plan fiduciary committee members, investment advisors and asset fund managers, among others.
