Employee Benefits

The membership of this Committee has grown substantially in recent years, reflecting developments in the area of employee benefits law resulting from significant statutory, regulatory, and caselaw changes. Membership is well-balanced among management, union and plaintiff practitioners and is comprised of full-time benefits practitioners, academics, government attorneys, and lawyers who have a more general labor and employment practice but who deal with employee benefits issues frequently enough to benefit from committee membership and participation. The committee is responsible for the publication of Employee Benefits Law.
