Connecticut ERISA Lawyer

ERISA Explained by a New Haven Employment Discrimination Attorney

Need an attorney for ERISA in Connecticut? The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) is a federal statute that mainly protects participants in employee benefit plans, such as health benefit plans and pension plans. Other retirement plans run by ERISA include 401k plans, defined benefit pension plans, employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs), and a variety of employer-sponsored medical and disability plans. ERISA defends both plan participants and beneficiaries from the denial of benefits, benefit changes, failure of proper disclosure of plan terms and other violations of fiduciary duties.

Employers must comply with the specified requirements when they set up their employees with plan investment options and investing plan assets that best suit the needs of the employees. Unfortunately, upon investigation some of the plans that look great on paper have a shockingly different reality.

The Secrets Behind Your Benefit Plan

Many companies today are undergoing scrutiny for good reason. It is not uncommon for an employer to invest millions into their own company stock with the money from plan assets and then offer their own employees the chance to invest their plan contributions into it as well. Furthermore, it is startling that employers will also actively involve themselves in illegal and high-risk accounting and business practices. Employers often distort these issues in order to throw off employees and investors. Poor decisions of an employer can lead to utter financial collapse of the company. The employees who participate in the benefit plan will face severe losses.
