ERISA Litigation Fundamentals
Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA). ERISA is a federal law that protects retirement plan assets (such as a pension or 401K plan through their employers) from mismanagement and misconduct by plan fiduciaries. ERISA assigns standards of fiduciary responsibility to those who manage and control plan assets.
The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) statute is found at 29 U.S.C. § 1001 et seq.
ERISA plan or employee benefit plan can be either a welfare plan (employee welfare benefit plan), pension plan (employee pension benefit plan), or both. A welfare plan is usually established but the employer and/or an employee organization to provide (through purchased insurance or otherwise) benefits such as medical, accident, disability, death or unemployment. A pension plan is usually established but the employer and/or an employee organization to provide retirement income to employees.
The law allows participants and assignees such as healthcare providers the right to sue for benefits. ERISA does not mandate what benefits employers provide or that employers have to offer any benefits to employees.
Through ERISA litigation, our lawyers can recover losses on behalf of providers and individuals. ERISA litigation inquiries can be directed to Robert S. Amador, Esq. at (310) 792-7400 or via our contact form.
