Employee benefits and pensions are considered both when the employee is hired and when they leave the position (for whatever reasons).

Also, some employees establish a requirement that employees work with them for a certain period of time before they are eligible for benefits.

What Employee Benefits are Protected by Massachusetts law?

Under Massachusetts law, employers who provide employees with medical plans owe them certain legal duties. For instance, they must disclose important health plan information, and employees must be provided with a fair process when reviewing their claims according to the plan. For employees who lose their jobs, there are some laws that allow them to continue the health care plan they had with their prior employer while they actively look for a new job.
