Employee Benefits

Multiemployer Plans

Multiemployer plans present unique issues from both a legal and a business perspective. Employers that participate in these plans must balance their own business needs against the requirements imposed upon them by these plans and the corresponding collective bargaining agreements. The following descriptions illustrate the depth of our knowledge and skill with respect to these types of plan:

  • Representing employers in withdrawal liability disputes.
  • Counseling on various issues, including advising on complete and partial withdrawal liability issues arising in connection with corporate transactions, workforce reductions, facility moves, and shutdowns and conversion from union to nonunion status.
  • Representing clients with respect to audits of contribution amounts.
  • Defending clients in suits brought by multiemployer plans.
