What Are Your Employment Law Rights?

When an employer offers an employment benefit package, the employee has a right to all the benefits offered in that package. Each employer's benefits package is different, and it often may depend on the pay scale or length of employment. The types of benefits that may be part of an employment package include the following:

If your employer purposefully or negligently prevents you from obtaining your promised benefits, the Chicago employee benefits attorneys of DeBofsky, Sherman & Casciari, PC can help.

We regularly help employees deal with their employers, whether negotiating an employment package or enforcing their employment rights.

Protecting Employment Rights Through ERISA

Although an employer is not required to provide many employment benefits, once they offer a benefits package, they must follow strict legal regulations. The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) was enacted to ensure that plans involving pension, medical, surgical, sickness, disability, and death benefits are financially sound, so that they are available to employees as promised. By staying current with ERISA provisions, our Chicago employee benefits lawyers help protect employees' rights to plan benefits.
