Recently, a number of employees sought the legal counsel of Sidney L. Gold & Associates, P.C. in an ERISA class action lawsuit. Class actions for ERISA, which is an acronym for the Employment Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, occur when there is a breach in a fiduciary duty on the employer’s behalf.
In this particular case, employees of Tri-State Imaging Consultants, located in Jenkintown, Pennsylvania, reported that their health insurance premiums were misappropriated over a period of at least six months. The plaintiffs claim that deductions were taken from their paychecks and not transferred to their health plan account or other benefits plans, resulting in uncovered treatment services.
There are federal laws that employers must adhere to regarding the health and retirement plans of their employees. When a breach in fiduciary duty or ethics occurs, the employee suffers. If you suspect that your employer is not satisfying his or her ERISA requirements, seek the counsel of our Philadelphia employment lawyers at Sidney L. Gold & Associates, P.C.
