Helping Individuals in Austin Pursue ERISA Litigation through the Court System

The Employment Retirement Income Security Act of 1984, commonly known as ERISA, is a federal statute which governs minimum guidelines that apply to pension and benefit plans for employees. These plans include healthcare plans, retirement plans, and stock options plans that are applicable to the private sector. 

Under ERISA, individual employers are not required to provide their employees with certain benefits. However, individuals known as fiduciaries, who oversee these plans, must abide by certain requirements. In cases where the employer breaches a certain fiduciary duty, participants in the plan have the option of filing a lawsuit, ushering in the litigation process. 

If you are an employee who has been denied benefits under a plan, you may be eligible to take legal action. Attorney J. Price McNamara of the Law Offices of J. Price McNamara can discuss your rights with you and assist you with all aspects of your Austin ERISA litigation. Please contact us online today to find out how we could assist you with your legal matter. 

Types of ERISA Litigation

Pursuant to the ERISA statute, employers are not permitted to disrupt or otherwise interfere with an employee’s eligibility for benefits under a qualified plan. In cases where an employer unlawfully interferes with a benefits plan, the employee might be eligible to file a lawsuit. The purpose of ERISA litigation is to try and recover whatever financial benefit or benefits the employee lost from his or her plan. ERISA litigation could arise in all of the following circumstances:

  • The employer makes a material misrepresentation about how many benefit options an employee might be eligible to receive under the plan
  • The employer does not properly manage the assets in a benefits plan
  • An employer knowingly discriminates against an employee who takes measures to exercise his or her benefit plan rights, such as when an employer fires or fines the employee
  • The employer uses assets of the plan in order to benefit the plan sponsor or administrator of the plan
  • The employer does not operate the benefits plan in a careful or prudent manner
  • The employer decides to wrongfully terminate a benefit plan, such as a stock option plan, for an employee who still works at the same job within the company
