Is my Employer Covered by ERISA?
- posted: Nov. 30, 2019
In most cases? Yes. ERISA, the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, applies to almost all private-sector employers that maintain welfare benefit plans for their employees. Unlike many other Federal laws, ERISA applies regardless of the size of the employer. This includes corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies, and sole proprietorships. ERISA even applies to most nonprofit organizations (many religious organizations are exempt).
Because most employee benefit claims fall under this complex Federal law, you should get advice from an experienced ERISA lawyer as soon as possible. We handle:
Short Term Disability
Long Term Disability
and most other employee benefits.
