Erisa : Principles of Employee Benefit Law
ERISA: Principles of Employee Benefit Law highlights the common themes, central principles, and competing policies of employee benefits law in a compact, accessible work. ERISA (Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974) case law is vast - there are thousands of reported decisions on some topics. This book selectively analyzes key cases to provide a coherent account of the principal features of ERISA and benefits law. The book examines the labor law requirements applicable to employee benefit plans, which are enforceable by private civil action and continue to produce a large volume of litigation and also provides an introduction to the types of employee benefit programs and an overview of ERISA's policies and scope. This detailed text addresses ERISA's conduct controls and pension content controls. ERISA: Principles of Employee Benefit Law will also explore some of the more important reform proposals that the current system seems likely to engender.
