Preemption is a legal term that essentially says goodbye to state law when it comes to ERISA. Unless state law is specific to insurance products, ERISA applies to your case. Forget about bad faith laws in your state. Forget about jury trials. ERISA applies. The preemption of federal law over state law is ERISA. That means your employee benefits and your rights to those benefits are governed by that federal law alone. You don’t need to do this alone.
