As a full-time employment law attorney, Ms. Glennon has the knowledge, skill and confidence to take on your employer and get you the benefits you rightfully deserve.

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:

  • Participation
  • Vesting
  • 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 without the need for a medical exam. If an employer fails to provide this option or notice to an employee, then the employer is liable to the employee for certain penalties and monetary damages. The damages only increase if the employee is unable to secure other insurance or must do so at an increased cost.
