Will the recent economic turmoil and large investment losses cause an increase in ERISA litigation? Several lawsuits have recently been filed against companies with employer stock in their plans who have been hit by the subprime mortgage problems. The 401(k) fee lawsuits are moving through the courts and the first appellate court decision resulted in a wide-ranging victory for the defense. Our speakers will cover these issues and more, including the viewpoint of the DOL on recent ERISA litigation developments.
