    Event Synopsis:
    The Multi-Employer Pension Plan Amendment Act of 1980 (MPPAA) provides withdrawal liability against employers in cases when they deliberately depart from or reduce participation in a pension plan. By legally holding such employers liable to the plan for its share of unfunded vested benefits, the act gives a greater financial protection to other practitioners and executives who are also plan holders.

    In addition, these withdrawal liability provisions also help strengthen a financially weak multi-employer plan by providing new funding and benefit adjustment rules. This results in a more structured and strengthened plan.

    Listen as a panel of distinguished employee benefits professionals organized by The Knowledge Group provide the audience with the latest issues in multi-employer pension plan withdrawal liability. Speakers will give helpful remedies and defense strategies when faced with the same dilemma.

    In a LIVE Webcast, the speakers will discuss:
    • Overview of the Multi-Employer Pension Plan Amendment Act of 1980 (MPPAA)
    • Withdrawal Liability Provisions in MPPAA
    • Recent Developments and Issues
    • Arbitrating, Litigating, and Settling Withdrawal Liability under MPPAA
    • Remedies and Defenses
    • What Lies Ahead in 2018
