When a company administers a defined-contribution retirement plan, the complaint for this class action says, the potential for violating its fiduciary duties can be high. The complaint alleges that fiduciaries for Massachusetts Financial Services (MFS) Company’s two plans—its Defined Contribution Plan and its MFSavings Retirement Plan—breached their duties under ERISA, executed prohibited transactions, and did not act with prudence or with the good of the plans in mind. Among other things, the complaint claims that MFS mutual funds were the primary offerings in the plan, that the funds had high expenses, and that fiduciaries executed transactiosn that are forbidden by ERISA.
