What Is an ERISA Lawyer?

ERISA laws require a lawyer with prowess to handle. ERISA (the Employee Retirement Income Security Act) represents a set of laws meant to protect employees with their benefits. Naturally enough, every institution that must abide by these rules is keen on conversing with lawyers who can tell them which way the wind is blowing.
All sorts of issues plague the path to ERISA compliance. Companies with a third-party insurance agent or administrators is one issue, as are issues with COBRA, fiduciary insurance and bond reviews.
As an ERISA lawyer, you would work with companies to facilitate the protection of employees, and help devise labor relation strategies.
Everything regarding unemployment compensation, worker’s compensation, wage and hour law, and discrimination are part of this.

Success Stories

I was incredibly happy with the site. I thought it was very easy to use; had significantly more postings than any other site (or combination of sites); and provided a lot of useful information. (the number, and caliber, of job postings). Exactly what I was looking for – I have 5 years’ experience and was looking for a lateral move or an in-house position, and that’s exactly what I found!
