Employee benefits and associated issues have become significant drivers of social, economic and legal policy-making. With an increasingly older workforce approaching the threshold of entitlement to an ever-dwindling Social Security “safety net,” the management of retirement income and the funding of retirement benefits have important legal and policy concerns. These concerns, along with the continuing rise in healthcare costs, have drawn the attention of the federal courts and the Department of Labor.ERISA litigation is now one of the most significant and fast-changing fields of litigation, and the stakes are still growing.
