Employment Benefits Series

Since June the Library has been hosting an ongoing Lunchtime Speaker series on Employment Benefits with the U.S. Department of Labor. Topics range from retirement plans for small business to ERISA fiduciary responsibilities. The Employment Benefit Series is presented by Christine Kerley, J.D., who has worked with EBSA (U.S. Department of Labor, Employee Benefits Security Administration) since 2006, during which time she has held positions as Investigator and Benefits Advisor. She has conducted investigations and informal reviews dealing with a wide range of ERISA compliance issues. Ms. Kerley is a member of the California State Bar, and holds a B.A. from the University of California, San Diego, and J.D. from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law.

This course teaches how to handle ERISA cases from the pre-litigation administrative appeal through final judgment. It addresses how to recognize when a case is subject to ERISA, the applicable limitations periods, administrative exhaustion, ERISA causes of action, procedure in ERISA cases, standards of review, briefing and trying an ERISA case, and seeking attorney fees. Portions of the course, such as recognizing when ERISA governs a case and the emerging law with respect to subrogation, are important to all practitioners, regardless of whether they handle ERISA cases.
