Meta Financial Group CASH 401(k) / ERISA Lawsuit

- by

Meta Financial Group has been accused of securities fraud. If you are a current or former employee or are a member of any of Meta Financial Group investment plans or profit sharing retirement plans you may be included in this possible Meta Financial Group 401(k) or Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) class action. If you purchased or held Meta Financial Group stock in one of those plans during the periods May-14-09 to Oct-15-10, you may have a claim.

Under ERISA, Meta Financial Group employees can file a lawsuit against the company for putting stock options at risk. Meta Financial Group employees have a claim if they can prove their employer violated its fiduciary duty to its employees. Fiduciary duty refers to a company's responsibility to the people who invest in it. If an employer puts the company's interest ahead of the investors', it has broken its fiduciary duty. A fiduciary is a person that exercises discretion over the management of plan assets or exercises discretionary control over the administration of the plan.

ERISA is a federal law that sets minimum standards for pension and health plans set up by private businesses. ERISA was designed to protect people who participate in employee benefit plans, including employees with stock options in a company. Stock options are a form of compensation in which employees are given the opportunity to purchase shares of the company stock at a certain price.
