Administrative Rule Making
It has been our experience that boards of trustees find themselves in litigation because of inconsistency in the administration of the fund. Accordingly, we have worked with our trustee clients in developing rules and regulations for the administration of the trust fund. The development of these administrative rules ensures uniformity of procedure and guarantees the due process rights of persons appearing before the board. They also serve to help organize and highlight those situations in which the legislation creating the fund may be vague or incomplete. By utilizing rule making powers, the board of trustees can help give definition and more practical application to sometimes vague legislative language.
