Employee benefits law is a legal specialty area that focuses on advising businesses on retirement and welfare benefit plans, as well as those governed by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (popularly known as “ERISA”).
ERISA is a federal law that helps to protect participants in the most independently created, private-sector retirement plans in the United States.
The fundamental goal of ERISA is to develop clear standards and parameters that will safeguard workers when they are enrolled in employer-sponsored benefit plans.
In addition to their salaries, many employees receive benefits such as health and dental insurance, pensions, long-term disability insurance, 401(k) plans, and paid and unpaid leave. Employee benefits attorneys can assist you in understanding and negotiating employee benefits, whether as a business or an employee. Employee benefit attorneys can also assist you in resolving any issues with your employer if you have been denied a privilege you believe you are entitled to or if you have been fired unjustly.
As Employee Benefits attorneys, Southern Arizona Law will defend and litigate ERISA claims on behalf of employee benefit plans, plan trustees, and service providers in a variety of circumstances, including those involving large plan investment losses, claims that plans must be amended or terminated, and allegations that insurance coverage restrictions are unlawful. As a result, you must understand the law governing insurance coverage under qualified plans.
