This program will offer an overview of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (“ERISA”). It will examine recent cases involving allegations that an insurer or its affiliate violated a fiduciary duty owed to an ERISA plan it serviced, with an emphasis on cases concerning “revenue sharing” with a mutual fund that the plan offers its participants. It is designed for in-house counsel, human resource managers and benefit specialists who focus on employee benefit matters.
The two-hour program will consist of the following presentations.
