Providing Union Representation In ERISA Pensions & Benefit Cases
Administering a pension or employee benefit plan can be difficult. Union members have entrusted the plan with their money and depend on the union to see the funds are handled properly. At Cook & Logothetis, LLC, we can help.
For more than 35 years, we have provided representation and advice to unions on jointly administered employee retirement and employee benefit plans. Contact Cook & Logothetis to put our dedication and skill in your corner.
Compliance: What Is It?
We assist unions and the plans they sponsor in the following areas:
- Pension and retirement plans
- Health benefits, including retiree health benefits
- Severance plans
- Training and apprenticeship plans
Under the law, unions and employers run these funds jointly. When they do, they have a host of rules and regulations to follow. They must comply with Treasury regulations, the Taft-Hartley Act and the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, also known as ERISA.
An attorney from our firm can provide valuable assistance in complying with these laws. We act as counsel for some of the biggest union and employer benefit and retirement funds in the U.S. Our lawyers understand employee benefits law and can help you stay within it.
