In the July 16, 2021 edition of the Midlands Business Journal, Fraser Stryker attorney Emily Langdon was quoted in an article entitled “Wellness plans and services essential for employees and employers”, by Jasmine Heimgartner. In the article, Langdon discusses what employers should be mindful of when choosing health and wellness plans and services for their employees. “It is very important to consider the employer’s specific employee population and to customize the welfare benefit plan option(s) so that they are attractive for employees and within the employer’s financial means,” said Langdon. “Employers do not want to spend money on benefits that employees don’t want. But by offering attractive employee benefits, employers can retain desired employees and stay competitive in the applicable market.”
Langdon said “Some employers may think they need to offer a group health care plan, or a ‘cookie-cutter’ wellness plan, or nothing. Such options may be too expensive. However, there are other non-traditional or less traditional, less expensive options, that are feasible and attractive.”
Emily Langdon focuses her practice on employee benefits and ERISA. As part of this practice, Emily assists her clients with matters related to health and welfare benefits, executive compensation, pension and retirement plans, wellness plans, and health care reform. Emily also has significant experience in the areas of health care law, corporate transactions, business formation and advising, and employment law, all of which compliment her benefits work.
