ERISA and Securities Litigation Snapshot -- Things You Can Do Now to Minimize CFO and Board Liability
In the last few years, pension funding levels and 401(k) account balances have fallen dramatically. New disclosure rules, volatile market conditions, investment complexity and mandatory cash contributions are only a few of the many challenges that are unlikely to go away. Not surprisingly, ERISA litigation continues to grow, along with lawsuits related to employee benefit plan governance. Personal liability claims against C-level executives and board members have become the normal.
