ERISA Governed Retirement Plans
The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (“ERISA”) was enacted to protect the retirement income of workers and retirees in the private sector. ERISA sets minimum standards for the management of retirement and health benefit plans and requires plan fiduciaries to meet certain standards of conduct. If you have suffered losses due to a breach of fiduciary duty as a current or former employee or pension plan participant, the lawyers in the Naples, Florida Securities Office will help you pursue a claim against your employer.
In selecting and monitoring your retirement plan, your employer, the ERISA fiduciary, is required to act loyally, prudent and in your best interests. If your employer has failed to act in your best interests, the ERISA pension fraud attorneys at Gilman Law LLP’s Naples, Florida Securities Office can assist you in holding your employer responsible for your losses. Over the last several years, many companies have violated ERISA and other statutory pension laws and regulations. This practice has reached epidemic levels and injured plan participants.
Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOPs)
Employee Stock Ownership Plans (“ESOP”) are tax-qualified defined contribution employee benefit programs which consist primarily of the plan sponsored company stock. ESOPs are typically set up as an incentive program for employees or included as part of a retirement package. However, in some cases, the company stock is overvalued when sold to the ESOP and there are many fact patterns which give rise to liability for which you are entitled to damages.
