Employee Benefits

When employers need assistance in interpreting the complex laws and rules that apply to employee benefits, or when disputes arise between employers and employees, the guidance of a qualified attorney who is experienced in employment law and employee benefits can help the parties involved achieve their objectives or reach a fair resolution of their differences.

What is ERISA?The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, or ERISA, was enacted by the federal government to set standards for voluntary pension and health plans offered by private industry. Its aim is the protection of employees enrolled in the plans.

ERISA imposes many requirements on employers, including provision of information about plan funding and features. A number of amendments have been added: COBRA, HIPAA, Newborns’ and Mothers’ Health Protection Act, Mental Health Parity Act, and the Womens’ Health & Cancer Rights Act.

Complete information on ERISA is available from the U.S. Department of Labor at www.dol.gov.
