Compensation and Benefits
Protecting what is rightfully yours, now and in the future
Has your employer failed to pay compensation that you have earned? Are you negotiating a compensation package that includes bonus, deferred compensation or equity awards? Afraid your pension may not be there when you need it? At Vladeck, Waldman, Elias & Engelhard, P.C. we have a long history of assisting employees whose rights to pay or benefits have been violated, as well as in negotiating and advising on complex benefit packages.
A team focused on employee rights
Vladeck, Waldman, Elias & Engelhard is unique. Since the firm’s founding, our focus has been almost exclusively on championing employee rights. Every attorney is experienced and respected for the legal knowledge and successes achieved for clients in obtaining the compensation and benefits to which they are entitled under law. We also have extensive experience with negotiating executive compensation packages and resolving disputes when employers fail to live up to their contractual obligations.
We are a team. Our history is one of handling complex individual claims and class actions. Our attorneys are experienced in handling cases involving disputes in such areas as:
- Executive compensation
- Severance pay
- Post-employment competition
- ERISA (Employee Retirement Income Security Act)—enacted to protect employee benefit plan participants and their beneficiaries by:
o Requiring disclosure of financial plans and other information
o Establishing standards of conduct for plan fiduciaries
o Providing remedies and access to the federal courts
The law is on your side. However, those who have wrongfully denied you compensation and benefits are either not mindful of the law, or are willing to risk violating it. You deserve what you have been promised, and those who flaunt the law and disadvantage you should not be able to benefit from such actions.
This is why consulting with an attorney is advisable, and why having a firm with a focus and history of success in this complex area of the law is important.
