Pension & Employee Benefit Law (LAW-745-001)
There are no notices at this time.
Provides an introduction to the federal regulation of the pension system and evaluates the policy underpinnings of the current system of pension regulation. It will focus on the legal rights established to protect individual employees as well as the requirements designed to produce equitable treatment for rank and file employees. Although most of the applicable requirements are contained in the tax law, we also examine certain nontax questions, such as issues of age and sex discrimination in the pension system, medical care for retirees, and fiduciary responsibilities under ERISA.
