ERISA Claim Litigation 101
Presented by the Disability Law Section and Labor and Employment Law Section
About the Program
Learn how to pursue and to defend against claims for disability, health, severance, retirement, and other benefits from employer plans that are governed by the Employee Retirement and Income Security Act (ERISA). The program provides counsel for claimants, employers and administrators with a comprehensive overview of the procedural and substantive laws governing these claims. Find out what ERISA is and when it governs claims; why appealing a benefit denial to the plan or insurance company is critical; how the “trial court” often functions more like an appellate court; and how ERISA both limits and expands the available remedies. Increase chances of success, whether prosecuting or defending an ERISA claim decision by attending this seminar.
