Many employees in and around Oakland have the option of receiving several different types of benefits from their employer, including health care coverage, long term disability insurance, retirement funds, and more. Most of these benefits do not help you immediately but instead help you when you most need them, such as when you are ill, disabled, or after you retire and no longer earn a steady income. For this reason, it can be particularly harmful and upsetting if you are denied certain benefits in your time of need.
Fortunately, benefits provided by private sector employers throughout the United States are regulated by a federal law called the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). This law sets out strict guidelines that employers must follow in regard to fairly offering benefits, adhering to policies, and much more. When an employee suffers harm because an employer or insurance provider violated ERISA, the employee has certain legal rights to seek recovery for the harm caused.
If you believe your employer has violated your rights in regard to your benefits, please contact our ERISA attorneys for a free consultation as soon as possible.
Employees have the right to bring a legal claim under § 502 of ERISA and this provision allows them to bring a case for many different reasons. Claims can involve a variety of benefits and violations, and each type of ERISA litigation can have its own complicated legal issues. Some of the cases arising from ERISA that our firm regularly handles include the following:
If you believe that you have been wrongfully denied certain benefits provided by your employer, you should not delay in discussing a possible ERISA claim with a highly experienced ERISA lawyer in Oakland.
