ERISA Pension & Benefit Plan Consultant
ERISA Benefits Consulting, Inc. works with corporate, union, governmental and non-profit plan sponsors on a full range of projects for health, life, 401(k) and pension plans, including:
Develop a workforce strategy based on a "total compensation" approach, integrating pay, health & welfare benefits, pension/401(k), paid time off and quality of work life. Today's employee is very interested in benefits, and the term "fringe" isn't heard much anymore! The retirement of the baby boomers and the smaller size of the following generation are creating a long term environment where employers will compete to attract and retain qualified people in all positions.
BENEFIT PLAN DESIGN
EBC goes beyond technical requirements to design a qualified or non-qualified benefit plan that is tailored to your business objectives, the competitive environment and the demands of your workforce. The pension and healthcare needs and concerns of today's employees differ greatly from that of their parents.
An educated benefits staff can more effectively handle employee issues. Informed employees will better understand their benefits and the important part benefits play in the total compensation picture. Half hour to half day presentations on pension, health plan, 401(k), Social Security and Medicare issues can be customized for your benefits professionals, all your employees, your unions or your association members.
EXIT INCENTIVE PLANS
Is your company restructuring or reinventing itself? ERISA Benefits Consulting can design and implement early retirement bridge plans, voluntary severance plans and other tools to ease the impact of often difficult change for your business and employees.
Benefits are an important and very expensive part of collective bargaining agreements. We have evaluated a wide-range of plans and negotiated with unions on health plans, traditional pension plans, 401(k) and retiree medical plans.
MERGERS AND ACQUISITIONS
M&A work can be complicated and stressful for your business whether you are acquiring or selling a business unit. ERISA Benefits Consulting can assist with due diligence when you are contemplating an acquisition or divestiture and amend, integrate or spin off plans.
As an attorney by training, Dr. Johnson is highly qualified to assist legal counsel in benefits litigation or legal matters involving a benefits issue.
Are you maximizing this advantage? Binding arbitration is an attractive, cost effective and faster alternative than litigation. Long the backbone of labor relations, arbitration is expanding by practice, contract and law to more of the employment relations. ERISA Benefits Consulting can assist in the preparation as well as help present your case. Dr. Johnson has presented two dozen cases under the rules of the American Arbitration Association.
