How ERISA helps with employee benefits

The Employee Retirement Income Security Act, also known as "ERISA," was enacted in 1974 in an effort to administer rules for employers to provide pension and insurance benefit plans for retiring employees. The act also addresses pre-paid legal services, apprenticeship and training programs for employees, as well as scholarship funds and day care centers for children of employees.

The federal minimum wage is currently $7.25 per hour. The New York state minimum wage is $8.75, which will be raised to $9.00 per hour on December 31, 2015.

Abercrombie & Fitch loses employment discrimination lawsuit

And, this does not necessarily occur during the course of a working relationship, but may have already been agreed upon and signed if a New York resident signed a restrictive covenant agreement.
