Product Description

This Law of Employee Pension and Welfare Benefits casebook is designed to introduce readers to the breadth and the depth of employee benefits law. Its goal is to give the reader an appreciation of why the federal government regulates employee benefit plans, how it does so, and the policy and social justice questions raised by the manner and effectiveness of that regulation. Law of Employee Pension and Welfare Benefits begins with a brief history of employee benefit plans and explains how they came to have such importance in our society. It then offers a broad overview of how the two most significant federal statutes, the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) and the Internal Revenue Code (IRC), regulate employee benefit plans. The creation and operation of pension and welfare benefit plans is examined, followed by an analysis of the federal preemption of state regulation in this area.

The statutory and case law that governs plan administration and enforcement of plan benefits is next considered. The book then turns to the complex regulatory scheme that determines whether a plan qualifies for favorable tax treatment. It concludes with the issues that arise if a plan is terminated, and the role of the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation in insuring certain plan benefits.

Table of Contents includes:
Origins and Reasons for Employee Benefits and ERISA;
Employee Pension Plans;
Welfare Benefits;
Regulation of Employee Benefit Plans;
Preemption;
Plan Administration;
Enforcement Issues;
Nondiscrimination Rules;
