Employment lawyers work with employers and employees in the commencement, termination, promotion and transfer of employees, and these changing relationships often implicate rights and responsibilities under ERISA and related employee benefit statutes and regulations. In litigation, employee benefits should be considered in evaluating damages or finalizing settlements. The panel of employee benefit experts will outline for employment lawyers the types of issues that typically arise when crafting employment contracts, severance agreements, or finalizing settlements of employment disputes, and will discuss recent cases that highlight how the failure to consider such issues have negative implications on employee benefits and rights under ERISA, as well as creating confusion in plan administration.
