Employee Rights to Benefits
An integral feature of the United States’ laws regarding employee benefits is the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974. This Act was passed with the intention of protecting the benefits promised to employees, including retirement plans and health insurance, among others.
Our firm assists employees in obtaining the benefits they are owed by current or former employers. Examples of such benefits are correct pension payments; missed contributions to 401(k) plans; or coverage under the employer’s health insurance.
