Every employee should know his or her workplace rights. While most employees are familiar with basic workplace laws like those related to overtime and hourly pay, there are too many workers who do not know how ERISA protects them.
ERISA stands for Employee Retirement Income Security Act. The Act aims to protect employees when they reach retirement by ensuring they get any benefits their employer promised they would receive. ERISA does this through imposing strict rules on how pension and benefits plans are funded and managed. If pension plan assets were depleted, funds mismanaged, or a host of other wrongs were committed, the victims who sustained financial loss can pursue a claim for violations of ERISA. However, to understand when and why you may have an ERISA claim, you need to know how the law actually works.
