Issues with benefit plans and pension payments arise both upon hiring an employee and when they leave the job. Texas's laws specifically govern the manner in which employers implement health plans and retirement pension payments. Recipients of such benefit plans can file claims using these laws.

Furthermore, if a Grand Prairie employer guaranteed any benefits to the employer in a contract when work began, they must make good on these. The employer sometimes pays for benefit plans, but at times the employee must make a voluntary contribution. Furthermore, 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 Texas law?

Those employers who provide medical plans for employees owe particular legal duties under Texas law to those they cover. They must disclose important information about the health plans, and employees are entitled to a fair process in the treatment of their claims under the plan. There are also some laws which give employees the right to continue on their health care plan from the previous employee during periods in which they are actively pursuing new employment.

Employers in Grand Prairie also owe legal duties to employees who receive pension plans. First, the employer is bound by law to provide the benefits that were guaranteed in the payment plan. Furthermore, it is the employer who must bear the risk of any investments that are made on behalf of an employee under a matched contribution plan.
