For many Americans, having a good job means more than receiving weekly or bi-weekly pay. It also means receiving employee benefits that help with health, retirement and financial stability. Most employees who have such benefits expect that they will automatically receive the benefits they signed up for. Unfortunately, this does not always happen. When problems arise with your benefits, contact an employment lawyer. Call the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, law firm, The Employment Rights Group toll free at 888-357-0380.
Our lawyers counsel and represent employees in matters involving employer-provided benefits such as these:
Pensions and other retirement plans
401(k), 457 and other deferred compensation plans
Health insurance, including dental and vision insurance
Health care and child care savings accounts
Disability insurance plans
COBRA continuation of health insurance and other benefits after separation
Claims such as these usually fall under ERISA, the Employment Retirement Income Security Act. This law controls how benefit claims are handled, and is generally thought to favor employers. That's why it is important to consult with an attorney with experience in this area. Our law firm has been helping employees with all matters related to employment law since 1994. The attorneys have comprehensive knowledge of employee benefits under ERISA.
Statutory Employee Benefits
In addition to employer-provided or funded benefits, employees are eligible for government-provided benefits, including these:
FMLA (Family and medical leave)
Social Security and Social Security Disability
Our lawyers can help with issues related to these benefits.
How We Help
Our employment lawyers provide assistance to employees who are having problems receiving the benefits they were promised. We urge employees to contact an experienced employment attorney for assistance if they are not able to access their benefits or receive information from an employer. There are things that we can do.
We employ a three-pronged strategy. We first consult with the client, then intervene with the employer, and finally undertake legal action if the first two approaches do not resolve the problem. Our goal is to solve the client's problem as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.
