I am currently working for an employer that claims as a benefit they offer 401k on the company website. The problem is when employees, like myself, ask for the benefit to be added they say they are not doing anything for 401k. I want to know how to properly pursue this matter. Please and thank you in advance for the assistance.
There could be a promissory estoppel claim here, if you can prove you relied on the promise of a 401K being offered in accepting the job. Furthermore, if your employer has an employee handbook which promises 401K to employees, that would be additional support for a promissory estoppel claim. If your employee contract states you have a right to a 401K, then you might also have a breach of contract claim as well.
