Employee Benefits Committee Newsletter

Issue: Fall 2015

About This Issue

Both college and professional football have returned with the former apparently not headed to a series of NLRB election hearings and the latter apparently done with litigating football air pressure. It's debatable whether the lack of transparency hanging over California's capitol is political or more a function of the smoke from the wildfires burning throughout Northern California. We table our musings on these issues, email servers, candidate hairstyles and others because it is time for the third 2015 edition of the EBC Newsletter. Our continuing efforts to address a broad spectrum of issues and developments of interest bring you the following offerings in this edition:

  • Our annual fall feature "Circuit Round-up" is brought to us this year by Michelle Roberts, of Springer & Roberts, LLP who offers items of interest from the courts since our Midwinter Meeting;
  • In "Multiemployer Pension Reform Act of 2014: Partitions," Mayoung Nham, with the able assistance of Barry Slevin, of Slevin and Hart P.C., explores the brave new world of partition of struggling multiemployer-defined benefit pension plans under the new act;
  • Our new Committee Management Co-Chair, Al Holifield offers his thoughts on succeeding Debbie Davidson in that role; and
  • The ever popular "As We Go to e-Press" returns.

The members of the editorial board remain keenly interested in your feedback on whether we are capturing what you would like to see in your newsletter. They would also be delighted to discuss article ideas you may have. Those with thoughts on issues they would like to see addressed and/or thoughts on articles should contact one of the editors.
