MMC Benefits Handbook
Prudent Actions by Plan Fiduciaries
In addition to creating rights for plan participants, ERISA imposes duties on the people responsible for the operation of the plans. The people who operate these plans, called "fiduciaries", have a duty to do so prudently and in the interest of you and other plan participants and beneficiaries. No one, including your employer, or any other person, may terminate you or otherwise discriminate against you in any way to prevent you from obtaining a benefit or exercising your rights under ERISA.
