Barnard Iglitzin & Lavitt LLP Employee Benefits

Employee Benefits

Employee benefits for employees in private industry are normally subject to the Employee Retirement Income and Security Act of 1974 (ERISA). The legal rights, remedies, and procedures under ERISA are completely separate—and often quite different—from those under federal labor laws.

For public employees, a complex series of state laws and regulations establish their benefits and impose specific procedural requirements to enforce their right to receive these benefits. Our firm can provide your labor organization, and individual members, with the advice and representation required to establish and enforce the right to employee benefits.
