Mathieson, Moyski, Austin & Co. have had numerous discussions with colleagues around the nation and at local law firms. All have agreed more guidance still needs to be published.
Since the U.S. Department of Labor will be administering the Act, we encourage you to review the Department’s website along with the “Questions and Answers" list. Seeking legal advice from your employment attorney is also highly encouraged.
