ERISA stands for Employee Retirement Income Security Act. Enacted in 1974, ERISA laws were put in place to protect the retirement accounts and health benefits of American workers.
ERISA laws also govern employee benefit plans for private corporation plan participants and their beneficiaries including: 401(k) plans, severance packages, and health benefit plans.
Mr. Tostrud and a coalition of other firms successfully litigated an ERISA claim against a sub-prime lender in Southern California. The case settled for more than $20 million.
