Description

This book focuses on developing issues in international, comparative, and transnational employee benefits law. It is divided into four areas that practitioners will need to become familiar with in order to thrive in our increasingly global economy and legal practice: sovereignty and jurisdictional issues involving the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA); public and private pension issues with emphasis on the trend toward privatization and defined contribution plans; public and private health care issues surrounding national health care systems and private health insurance schemes; and the intersection between employment discrimination laws throughout the world and global employee benefit law issues.
