About This Meeting

In 2014, the Department of Labor and GreatBanc Trust agreed to a settlement in an ESOP lawsuit that laid out best practices for the bank to follow as an ESOP trustee in selecting, evaluating, and documenting the appraisal process. While binding only on GreatBanc, many experts believe the guidelines are worth following for other ESOP fiduciaries.
