The course will focus on employee benefit plans sponsored by private employers under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). ERISA governs a wide range of retirement and welfare benefit programs, including plans providing pension, profit-sharing, medical, and long-term disability benefits. Private employer benefit plans play an essential role in the U.S., providing benefits that are paid for by the government in many other developed nations. However, the role of benefit plans is now in flux, as shown by the demise of traditional pension plans and the new Affordable Care Act. Course topics will include fiduciary duties, ERISA preemption, minimum requirements for pension plans, 401(k) plan fee disclosure rules, upcoming changes under the Affordable Care Act, and remedies available under ERISA.
