There is a lot of litigation and audit activity regarding an employer’s fiduciary obligations under its 401(k)/403(b) plans. Find out why selection and monitoring of investments and service providers, plan fees, and communication issues are under scrutiny.

  • Litigation over 401(k) and 403(b) fiduciaries duties (and particularly excessive fees) is on the rise across the country.
  • Employers that maintain 401(k) and 403(b) plans have fiduciary duties relating to the investments in those plans, and likely aren't properly addressing those duties.
  • There are ways to mitigate the risk of fiduciary liability, but employers must affirmatively take action.
