Employment Law - Employer Articles
Employer Duties under ERISA
The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) sets uniform standards for administering employee benefits for employers who choose to offer benefit plans to their workers. ERISA does not require employers to provide these benefits. The benefit plans covered by the Act include pension plans and welfare plans, such as retirement accounts, health insurance, disability, death benefits, paid time off, paid training time and prepaid legal services, among others.
What is the Pregnancy Discrimination Act?
The Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA) was enacted as an amendment to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The PDA prohibits employers from discriminating against employees based on pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions. Public employers, such as federal, state and local government agencies, and private employers with 15 or more employees are covered by the PDA.

A petition for review of the denial of asylum and related relief in a case in which the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) denied relief on adverse credibility, is denied, where: 1) the immigration judge acted within his discretion when he admitted into evidence a letter prepared by the Director of Department of State's Office of Country Reports and Asylum Affairs in Bulgaria, and relied on it to find that the police subpoenas petitioner submitted were fraudulent; 2) the IJ's admission of the letter did not violate petitioner’s right to examine evidence or cross-examine witnesses against him; 3) admission of the letter did not violate due process; 4) the IJ's adverse credibility finding based on the fraudulent subpoenas was supported by substantial evidence; and 5) petitioner failed to present other reliable evidence to meet his burden of proof.
