Supreme Court allows retiree benefit cuts
Los Angeles Times, March 25, 2008
The Supreme Court ruled to let stand a federal policy that allows employers to reduce their health insurance expenses for retired workers once they turn 65 and qualify for Medicare. Advocates for companies and labor unions openly said the compromise rule will encourage employers to maintain health coverage for their retirees. Otherwise, employers might drop all benefits for their former employees, they said.
