This book was created to present the modern world of employee benefits law in a manner that is both easily understood by the students and enjoyable for the instructor to teach. The book provides a streamlined presentation of the Code rules for qualified plans, thereby making room for an expanded treatment of defined contribution plans (particularly 401(k) plans) and health care plans. Much of the coverage in the book is condensed by using narrative text to introduce each new concept and to summarize the blackletter principles of the law (where they exist). After reading their assignments from this book, students arrive at class with an understanding of the concepts and an ability, based on the numerous illustrations throughout the narrative text, to apply the rules to client situations. The book substantially reduces the amount of class time that must be devoted to eradicating student confusion and explaining how the rules operate. As a result, more class time may be devoted to discussion of the hypothetical client problems, presented periodically throughout each chapter, that are designed to test the students? understanding of the material.

Understanding Employment Law strikes a balance between comprehensiveness and selectivity. It provides the substantive material needed to succeed in practice and in the classroom and on final examinations, without overwhelming the reader with details that are unduly esoteric or tangential. The book begins first with common-law employment doctrines such as employment-at-will, employment contracts, employment torts, workplace privacy issues, and restrictive covenants. It then turns to federal and state statutory regulation of the workplace, covering topics such as compensation (including wage and hour legislation and unemployment insurance), employee benefits (including leave time, pensions, and health insurance), and workplace safety legislation.

Die drei Symptome eines miserablen Jobs

eine Fabel für Manager (und ihre Mitarbeiter)

Egal ob Tellerwäscher, Investmentbanker oder leitender Angestellte, jede Arbeit kann unglücklich machen. Auch wenn die Karriere noch so gut geplant und den eigenen Interessen und Fähigkeiten entsprechend gewählt wurde, quälen sich viele Menschen jeden Morgen zur Arbeit um abends noch frustrierter nach Hause zu kommen. Bestseller Autor und Business-Guru Patrick Lencioni erzählt die unvergessliche Geschichte Brian Baileys, eines pensionierten Vorstandsvorsitzenden auf der Suche nach dem Sinn in seiner Arbeit und seinem Leben. -------- Als alle Mitarbeiter Platz genommen hatten, begann Brian Bailey. Er entschied sich, direkt auf den Punkt zu kommen, der ihm unter den Nägeln brannte: "Handzeichen bitte. Wer von Ihnen mag seinen Job?" Keine Reaktion. Die Mitarbeiter sahen ihn an, als hätte er russisch mit ihnen geredet. "Also gut", Brian grinste. "Dann muss ich wohl deutlicher werden. Okay, wie wär's damit: Wer findet die Aussicht, zur Arbeit zu gehen, schön? Wer hat gute Laune, wenn er hier ankommt?" Brian hätte genauso gut fragen können, ob sie gern ausgepeitscht werden wollten. Keine Hand ging hoch, der eine oder die andere lachte laut. -------- Auf einer ungewöhnlichen Reise, die ihn vom Vorstandszimmer eines angesehenen Unternehmens zu den Skipisten am Lake Tahoe und schließlich zur Bestellannahme einer Fastfood Kette führt, entlarvt Brian die drei Symptome, die jede Arbeit zu einer miserablen Angelegenheit machen können (Nichtmessbarkeit, Anonymität und Irrelevanz) und bietet Managern und Angestellten eine Lösung um sie einzudämmen. So versucht er Investmentbanker davon zu überzeugen, dass Arbeitszufriedenheit wichtig ist oder er motiviert den Pizzalieferanten freundlicher zu seinen Kunden zu sein. Sowohl für den Manager, der versucht Wettbewerbsvorteile zu schaffen und seine Angestellten zu motivieren, als auch für den Mitarbeiter, der nach persönlicher Erfüllung in seiner Arbeit sucht, bietet das Buch unmittelbare Linderung - und Hoffnung.

The Law of Employee Pension and Welfare Benefits

This book introduces the student to how ERISA and the IRC protect and regulate employee pension and welfare benefit plans. The authors wrote this book mindful of the following concerns: • Coverage. With the intent to create a book that is both comprehensive and teachable, the authors carefully selected cases and secondary materials and wrote concise commentary to illuminate both the “forest” and the “trees.” The approach to coverage was determined by topic; the authors relied on case law for issues like preemption, and focused on statutory and regulatory material for topics that are rarely litigated—such as qualified plan nondiscrimination requirements. Although the book relies on primary cases and the analysis of statutes and regulations, the authors also excerpted material from many fine articles to introduce the policy implications of employee benefits law. • Case Selection. The authors selected cases that illustrate the judicial interpretation and application of ERISA, with a bias towards Supreme Court decisions. Only cases that aid the understanding of the statute were included. For the most part, the authors avoided “squib” cases in favor of commentary that explains the law in greater detail. • Questions and Problems. Believing that the best way to involve students is through questions and problems that require them to actively engage the material, the authors included numerous questions and problems that require close examination of the relevant case or applicable statute. • Adaptability. Recognizing that courses in employee benefits can vary considerably based on differing professorial interests and student needs, the authors designed the book to be adaptable. This flexibility reflects the very different types of courses taught by Professors Frolik and Moore. • Teacher’s Manual. The detailed Teacher’s Manual provides a summary of every reprinted case, answers each one of the Questions and Problems, provides additional commentary, gives citations to helpful articles, and describes how the authors approach the material. • Updates. In recognition of the changing nature of employee benefits, the authors plan to supplement the book annually with an update of the relevant case law and statutory and regulatory changes. The new Third Edition includes: 1. Expanded coverage and discussion of 401(k) plans with a discussion of their potential, why they are popular and what problems they present. 2. Coverage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and how it relates to ERISA welfare plans. 3. Complete and detailed coverage of recent Supreme Court ERISA decisions, including Cigna Corporation v. Amara and Conkright v. Frommert 4. Expanded coverage of cases dealing with fiduciary duties in connection with 401(k) plans including Hecker v. Deere & Company, Jeremy Braden v. Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., and Difelice v. U.S. Airways. 5. Updated and expanded explanations of ERISA preemption of state law. This eBook features links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.

Understanding Labor and Employment Law in China

Continued economic prosperity in China and its international competitive advantage have been due in large part to the labor of workers in China, who for many years toiled in underregulated workplaces. More recently, labor law reforms have been praised for their progressive measures and, at the same time, blamed for placing too many economic burdens on companies, especially those operating on the margins, which in some cases have caused business failures. This, combined with the global downturn and the millions of displaced and unemployed Chinese migrant laborers, has created ongoing debate about the labor laws. Meanwhile, the Chinese Union has organized many of the Global Fortune 500 companies, and a form of collective bargaining is occurring. Workers are pursuing their legal labor rights in increasing numbers. This book provides a clear overview of the labor and employment law environment in China and its legal requirements, as well as practices under these laws used to deal with labor issues.

Employee Benefits Law: Qualification and ERISA Requirements

This title is part of the LexisNexis Graduate Tax Series. Employee Benefits Law: Qualification Rules and ERISA Requirements, Second Edition, differs from other employee benefits casebooks and practicing legal education materials in the following ways: • The book makes a clear delineation of the qualification requirements of the IRC applicable to employee benefit plans versus ERISA requirements. As such, most of the materials focus on pension and profit sharing plans. However, the tax rules applicable to welfare benefit plans and nonqualified deferred compensation plans are also discussed. • The book places a strong emphasis on planning and policy, focusing on the adoption, maintenance, and correction of such plans. • The substantive qualifications of the IRC are discussed in full. ERISA's fiduciary, enforcement, reporting, and disclosure standards are also set forth. Sophisticated realistic problems are an integral part of the materials, and are included throughout. These problems will require careful analysis and application of code and regulation provisions, administrative pronouncements, case law, and other relevant sources. Perhaps more important for a graduate tax program, the problems not only require careful analysis, but the application requires dealing with situations when the most careful reading of the materials does not supply an answer. An additional, in-depth, take-home problem may be used as the basis for class discussion or a graded written assignment. Employee Benefits Law is divided into two sections. Part 1 addresses the specific qualification requirements of the tax code applicable to all employee retirement plans, from both the employee and employer perspective. Part II addresses tax rules applicable to welfare benefits and nonqualified deferred compensation plans and ERISA rules applicable generally to all employee benefits plans. Thereafter, the ERISA rules applicable to employee retirement plans and welfare plans are covered.
