Employee Benefit Plans Cases
Our Texas Lawyers Can Help Protect Your Rights
ERISA, or the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, mandates that employers
take care to act thoughtfully and in the best interest of their employees
when selecting and delivering employee benefit plans. If an employer is
thought to have violated this, either knowingly or unknowingly, the company
may be held accountable for the loss incurred by employees.

informed advice that you need.
What Is an ERISA Employee Benefits Plan?
Most companies do their best to provide employees with the best possible
benefits allowed by the size and revenue of the company. In some cases,
mistakes are made that lead to these benefits being questioned by employees.
In general, benefits in these types of cases include:
- 401k plans
- Other retirement accounts and investments
- Employee stock ownership plans
- Profit-sharing plans
- Disability plans
- Post-retirement healthcare plans
How An ERISA Attorney Can Help
Employees will typically work with an attorney when filing claims of this
nature against a company or organization. Due to the complex legal issues
at work, it is critical that companies also enlist the help of an experienced attorney.
Companies should not speak with or advise an employee directly. Communication
with any parties involved should be done strictly through a lawyer. There
are several steps to the process of fighting a claim that your company
violated ERISA or employee benefit plans laws in Texas.
First, your attorney will examine the details of the claim in conjunction
with the benefits provided. From there, recommendations will be made about
the strength of the employee's case and how the business should proceed.
Our attorneys have the experience to negotiate settlements as well as
go to trial, depending on what is required.
