When an employer with a unionized workforce permanently ceases having an obligation to contribute to a multiemployer pension plan or has a significant decrease in contributions owed to the plan, withdrawal liability is triggered. Because the plan remains liable to pay the future pensions of employees with vested benefits, withdrawal liability is an exit fee serving as the employer’s share of the pension plan’s funding shortfall.

To help navigate the issues in withdrawal liability claims by multiemployer pension plans under ERISA, Practical Law, Lee Polk and Mark Trapp of Epstein Becker & Green, P.C., are presenting a webinar in which the presenters will provide a roadmap and best practices to follow to protect employers' interests when a withdrawal liability assessment arrives.

A short Q&A session will follow.

Presenters:

Lee Polk, Of Counsel, Epstein Becker & Green, P.C.

Mark Trapp, Member, Epstein Becker & Green, P.C.

Ray Kaplan, Editor, Practical Law Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation
