ERISA Attorney in Houston

Helping Disabled Individuals in Houston Learn More about ERISA and how it Applies to Their Disability Benefits

The Employment Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) is a federal law that sets minimum standards for retirement employee benefit pension plans. ERISA laws require plans to provide plan participants with information concerning the features and funding of their plans and establish a grievance and appeals process. The grievance and appeals process is meant to allow benefit plan participants to pursue the plan benefits to which they are entitled.

ERISA laws are complex, and allegations of violations require a thorough understanding of the law. An ERISA attorney in Houston is familiar with applying these allegations to the law and fully understands the federal litigation process. Attorney J. Price McNamara of the Law Offices of J. Price McNamara will not be intimidated by an insurance company’s tactics to prolong the negotiation and litigation process. Please contact us online today to discuss your legal options.

ERISA Requirements

ERISA awards benefit plan participants have the right to sue when fiduciary breaches occur. ERISA requires employers to maintain employee benefit records. An employee with an ERISA-backed benefit plan who suspects that an employer or fiduciary overseeing the plan violated ERISA may have the ability to file a lawsuit and seek compensation.

Penalties for ERISA Violations

Common penalties for ERISA violations may include payments to plan participants, fines, or injunctive relief. Egregious fiduciary violations may subject the plan fiduciary to personal liability. If an employee suspects that his or her ERISA rights are being violated, that employee should speak with an ERISA attorney in Houston who can investigate all allegations and provide recommendations for moving forward.

Our number-one goal is getting you and your family back to financial security as soon as possible.

Potential Reasons for Filing an ERISA Lawsuit

Some of the most common reasons for filing an ERISA lawsuit are breaches of fiduciary duty, plan interpretation issues (i.e., incorrect denial of benefits), prohibited transactions by a fiduciary, negligent investments, plan funding, and termination disputes. ERISA makes it illegal for employers to interfere with an employee’s rights to benefits under a plan. When employers violate ERISA laws, employees may be eligible to file a lawsuit to recover money that was lost from their benefit plans.

Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOP)

Employee stock ownership plans are designed for employees to invest primarily in their employer’s stocks/securities. Employee stock ownership plans are complex, and due to their complexity, they can be subject to many violations under ERISA. Common ERISA violations that occur in the context of employee stock ownership plans include:

  • Incorrect valuation of employer securities, which commonly happens when purchasing, selling and distributing stock
  • Failing to provide plan participants with plan benefits, such as voting rights, ability to diversify balances, and sell shares of stock
