For unionized employers participating in multiemployer pension plans, the threat of withdrawal liability poses a continual and ever-growing exposure to significant financial burdens. Join Jackson Lewis attorneys for a complimentary 60-minute webinar where we will discuss this trend, explain why it continues, and suggest proactive steps employers should take to manage or limit their withdrawal liability exposure.

Topics covered include:

  • The never-ending risk of underfunding.
  • The entities at risk for withdrawal liability, such as affiliates, successors, joint employers, and even individuals.
  • The inadvertent triggering of withdrawal liability.
  • Recent litigation and legislation, including updates on the Central States Teamsters Pension Fund and other severely underfunded multiemployer plans that have petitioned to cut participant benefits to improve their viability.
  • Tools to assess and manage withdrawal liability exposure, and
  • Collective bargaining obligations and strategies, including negotiated withdrawals and a review of the special rules for certain industries, such as the building and construction industry.
