This CLE webinar will provide ERISA counsel and litigators with a review of situations in which §510 claims often arise, the substantive and procedural challenges in litigating these claims, and damages and remedies under §510.
ERISA §510 claims arise when an employer allegedly makes an employment decision primarily to reduce healthcare costs, prevent vesting of employee pensions, bar an employee’s use of disability benefits, or avoid providing benefits to certain employees.
Section 510 claims are often brought in connection with age discrimination termination claims. These claims are also brought in the context of an independent contractor’s claims that the employer intentionally misclassified employees to avoid providing employee benefits.
Listen as our authoritative panel of ERISA attorneys helps you identify potential §510 claims, and discusses substantive and procedural issues in litigating these claims, as well as damages and remedies under §510.
- Common §510 claims
- Substantive and procedural requirements of litigating a §510 claim
