Employee benefits is a broad category that encompasses various forms of compensation provided to employees in addition to salaries and wages. It generally covers retirement plans, annuity programs, and benefits provided by welfare fund plans. Principal laws that affect employee benefits include the ACA, ADEA, COBRA, ERISA, FMLA, HIPAA and other privacy laws, Title VII, and USERRA.
Our attorneys provide advice and representation in connection with a wide variety of issues related to employee benefits, including fiduciary matters, compliance with the above laws, and even mergers. We review, prepare, and advise on plan documents, including trust agreements and summary plan descriptions, as well as counsel our clients about claims and appeal procedures. While we seek to resolve disputes without the need to involve a third party, when necessary, we can handle all conflicts that arise through litigation in court or arbitration.
If you have questions or issues concerning your retirement or health plan that you would like to discuss, please contact us to schedule a free consultation.
