John Schembari Presents on Fiduciary Duties at Annual Employee Benefits ConferenceNews | October 16, 2014
Kutak Rock partner John Schembari spoke at the 60th Annual Employee Benefits Conference in Boston, Massachusetts on October 12-15, 2014. The conference, presented by the International Foundation of Employee Benefits Plans, was attended by over 5,000 fiduciaries of employee benefit plans.
Schembari’s presentation, “Revisiting Fiduciary Responsibilities in Public Sector Plans,” focused on the fiduciary duties applicable to public sector employee benefit plans. Given the significant underfunding of many public pension funds, Schembari concentrated on several steps fiduciaries should take to ensure they comply with fiduciary obligations.

He concentrates his practice primarily in employee benefits, executive compensation, tax, corporate and privacy law.
