PROFESSOR SAMANTHA PRINCE PRESENTS AT THE COLLOQUIUM ON SCHOLARSHIP IN EMPLOYMENT AND LABOR LAW
October 2023 — Professor Samantha Prince presented her work-in-progress article on employee benefits transparency at the 18th Annual Colloquium on Scholarship in Employment and Labor Law (COSELL) at the University of Minnesota Law School.
She presented her latest research on the need for detailed employee benefits disclosure in job postings, as well on company websites. Her focus is on the need for numerous benefits, including retirement benefits and medical-related travel benefits, to be explained in more detail and in easy-to-understand plain language. Professor Prince outlined how such disclosure and transparency benefits all stakeholders including job seekers, current employees, consumers, investors, and employers. She recommends that legislative action be taken to require not only the disclosures but the form these disclosures take.
