Multistate Guide to Benefits Law (Wolters Kluwer/Aspen Publishers 1999-2010)

The 2011 Multistate Guide to Benefits Law is the single, easy-to-use resource that is essential for staying in compliance with the increasingly complex regulatory framework of state benefits law. Only the 2011 Multistate Guide to Benefits Law's unique chart format enables you to quickly locate information concerning one state's treatment of a particular issue, or compare the treatment required by several states—all on the same chart.

All of the text and charts in the 2011 Edition have been updated to reflect changes in the law including:

  • The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that was signed into law in March 2010
