Evaluating Risks, Meeting Contribution Obligations and Minimizing Withdrawal Liability
A recovering economy and capital markets make multi-employer pension plans a risky choice of retirement fund models for employers. Up and down results and required contributions under the PPA, along with the potential for other participating employers to fail to make required contributions, increase those risks.
Many employers may seek to drop out of plan participation in favor of less problematic retirement fund models, but withdrawal can bring potential liability.
Many funds are actively auditing employers, resulting in additional contribution obligations. The Financial Accounting Standards Board has approved a standard increasing disclosures of potential multi-employer liabilities, which will impact an employer's credit rating, ability to borrow, and stock price.
Listen as our panel of knowledgeable counsel use their experience with multi-employer pension plans to explain factors to consider when determining contribution obligations under the PPA and contemplating withdrawal from the plans. The panel will outline best practices to evaluate plan status and minimize potential risks and liabilities.
