The United States Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit upheld a district court ruling that an employer’s unpaid fringe benefit contributions owed to an employee 401(k) plan were not plan assets under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act because they were not clearly identified as plan assets in the governing documents. It also ruled that the employer did not breach its fiduciary duty by not depositing the correct funds into the retirement plan.
