Your Rights Under ERISA
At times, when an employee is terminated, retires, or otherwise leaves an employer, they have certain benefits and rights under a federal law commonly referred to as ERISA (Employee Retirement Income Security Act).
This law requires any employers that have pension plans to have certain minimum standards, including:
- Benefit accrual and funding
It also calls for employers to give an accountability of plan fiduciaries and allows employees to be able to sue if the requirements are not met.
For example, when you retire or leave an employer, you may have the right to convert an employer sponsored group life insurance policy to an individual life insurance policy. You can do this without the need for a medical exam.
If an employer fails to provide this option or notice to an employee, that employer is liable to the employee for monetary damages. The damages only increase if the employee is unable to secure other insurance or must do so at an increased cost.
Practicing for more than a decade in employment law, our attorneys have gained the respect of the legal community and our clients . We are known for championing the rights of employees in a professional and common-sense manner.
We have successfully represented many clients in recovering their legally guaranteed benefits under ERISA and ESOP. Our attorneys have fought for the rights of employees in Rochester and the surrounding New York metropolitan area, as well as internationally situated U.S. workers.
If you are in doubt of whether or not you have a case, let us review the facts of your situation and advise you as to you options. A professional opinion is more than worth the time and effort that it takes to make a phone call and an appointment for a flat-fee consultation.
