For employers who participate in multiemployer pension plans, potential multiemployer pension plan liabilities are often significant.  Employers need to understand the law in this area, how to monitor the funds in which they participate, what triggers withdrawal liability, and what can happen employers who decide to cease participation.  Seyfarth's ERISA litigation and benefits attorneys will address these issues and review the latest withdrawal liability legal developments, such as the recent Central States decision from the Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit (link).  Topics to be addressed include, but are not limited to:

  • Status of funds generally, and in particular the Central States Pension Fund
  • Recent court decisions on when business transactions trigger withdrawal liability
  • Partial withdrawal pitfalls
  • Hidden pitfalls when bargaining out of funds
  • Withdrawal liability assessment basics
  • Employer rights to information

CLE credit will be available for participants.*
