    Federal law prohibits discrimination in the provision of employee benefits. The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) prohibits discrimination against a plan participant or beneficiary for either exercising benefit rights or for the purpose of interfering with the attainment of benefit rights. Additionally, the Internal Revenue Code limits discrimination in favor of highly compensated employees or key employees in the provision of certain tax-qualified benefits.
