As we’ve previously discussed, an employer’s role in choosing and managing the company’s 401(k) plan is under current scrutiny. According to Inc., 401(k) accounts are increasingly popular as employers seek alternatives to traditional pension plans. In Tibble v. Edison International, 13-550, the U.S. Supreme Court will consider whether an employer offering such a plan has a continuing duty to monitor its investments. In the case, the employees argue that the employer did not act in their best interests when it chose higher-cost funds open to the general public, rather than lower-cost funds that were identical but available only to institutional investors. A decision is expected by late June 2015.
