Release of Employment-Related Claim May Unintentionally Release ERISA Benefit Claim
DeBofsky & Associates, PCLink to more items from this source
Feb. 22, 2015

"[T]he court determined that Dr. Gonda was highly educated and had sufficient time to review and consider the settlement agreement, which he reviewed with an attorney who was representing him in the employment case. Dr. Gonda also received consideration for the release, which explicitly referenced ERISA claims against his employer and related parties. The court expressed concern that disability benefits were not discussed during the settlement negotiations and LINA also waited for three years while internal appeals were pending before raising the issue." [Gonda v. The Permanente Medical Group, No. 11-cv-01363-sc (N.D. Cal. Feb. 17, 2015)]
