ERISA Basics for the Non-ERISA Lawyer



Details

Because ERISA, the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, governs both Health and Welfare Benefit Plans (group life, health, dental, disability, and other fringe benefit plans) and Qualified Retirement Plans (Pension, Profit Sharing, and 401(k) Plans), even lawyers who practice outside of this area should know a little bit about this federal law, as almost every private sector employer and benefit plan is subject to ERISA.

This seminar will cover:
1. How do I know if I am dealing with an ERISA-governed plan or policy?
2. The mechanics of an ERISA benefit claim
3. ERISA preemption
4. Common ERISA issues that arise in employment law
5. Common ERISA issues that arise in personal injury claims
