Ohio District Court Denies Motion to Dismiss Former Part-Time Employee's Health Care Benefits Interference Claim
Winston & Strawn LLP Link to more items from this source
May 1, 2014
"[A] part-time pharmacist alleged that he was not promoted to a full-time position because his employer did not want to enroll him in its health plan. [The company] argued that the employee had no standing to bring suit under Section 510 because he was not a participant in the plan.... The court looked to the text of Section 510 ... [and] indicated the 'may become eligible' language means 'a claimant must have a colorable claim that [1] he or she will prevail in a suit for benefits, or [2] eligibility requirements will be fulfilled in the future.'" [Sanders v. Amerimed, No. 1:13-cv-813 (S.D. Ohio Apr. 25, 2014)]
