Sean Sells Quoted in Law Times on Human Rights Check Needed for Pension Plans
Law Times quoted Hicks Morley’s Sean Sells in an August 28, 2017 article titled “Human rights check needed for pension plans.”
The article explores how pension plan sponsors need to work a human rights check into their compliance reviews. “Administrators or sponsors will often treat pension standards and income tax legislation as the guiding factors for plan terms, but to me, it’s not enough any more to say that you’re in compliance with the Pension Benefits Act” Sean said.
“Whether you’re a public or private employer, complaints about the terms of the plan are not really about the treatment of any single individual. The outcomes have the potential to apply to a significant number, if not all, of the plan members” he added.
