Few firms in the nation have achieved as much success as Hoffman & Lazear in fighting employers’ discrimination against employees based upon their pension benefit plans, or
combating employers’ efforts to cheat employees out of promised benefits. For example, under the
Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), the Health Insurance
Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and various provisions of
California law, it is unlawful for an employer to target employees for
termination or prevent an employee from collecting benefits simply based upon
their entitlement or future entitlement to a pension, or their need for health
care related to certain pre-existing medical conditions. It is also unlawful
for an employer to misappropriate an employee’s vested pension funds.
The law surrounding employee benefit plans is enormously complex, so if you are

of employee benefits, contact Hoffman & Lazear today for a free initial consultation.
