Employee Benefits Law

Employee benefits law focuses on the various forms of benefits and compensation employers provide to their employees: cash and equity compensation, retirement plans, and health and welfare benefits. The field lies at the intersection of a number of different legal disciplines, including employment and labor law, tax, health care law and even corporate and securities law. As such it is an uniquely challenging field of law, one which offers insight into many of the major issues our society currently faces: fears about the adequacy of retirement savings, struggles over the new health care law, and attempts to rein in outsize executive compensation arrangements.nnnElements used in grading: Class participation, attendance and final paper.nnnWriting (W) credit is for 3Ls only.
