9-135.010 - Introduction
The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) regulates employee pension and welfare benefit plans in the private sector. The crimes discussed in this chapter prohibit convicted persons from being employed by such plans (29 U.S.C. § 1111), punish willful failure to comply with the reporting and disclosure requirements of the statute (29 U.S.C. § 1131), and proscribe the use of fraud or actual or threatened violence to deprive plan participants and beneficiaries of their rights under the statute or the plan (29 U.S.C. § 1141).
