Benefits and ERISA
Merrick Law Firm LLC represents employees in connection with their entitlement to various employment benefits including health insurance, health coverage continuation under the federal COBRA statute, life insurance, pension, profit sharing and 401(k)s, short term disability (STD) and long term disability (LTD) benefits, and stock and options grants.
In addition, we handle section 510 interference claims under the federal Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) which involve an employer's attempt to deprive an employee of employment benefits, for example by terminating an employee just before his pension vests or to avoid having to pay him medical benefits.
We also co-counsel with employee benefits counsel when a case involves a highly specialized area of benefits law. Contact us online or call us today at 312.269.0200.
