Management Liability

Directors and officers may be held personally liable for their actions and decisions due to a wide range of exposures.

Employers are currently facing an unprecedented amount of workplace challenges. These challenges evolve every day and expose them to a variety of employment related issues.

Competitive benefit programs are a must, Fiduciaries are liable for decisions they make as they navigate through the confines of ERISA.
