Fifth Circuit Severance Pay Decision Emphasizes the Need for a Strong Administrative Record
Winston & Strawn LLPLink to more items from this source
Sept. 22, 2015

"[T]he court found that the severance plan administrator acted arbitrarily and capriciously because the administrative record contained no specific evidence supporting the determination that the plaintiff was fired for a violation of the employer's policies.... The court found that a mere citation to a policy, absent any specific evidence indicating how the policy was violated, was not substantial evidence that the plaintiff was actually fired for having violated the policy. Importantly, the court also found that the plan administrator failed to provide the plaintiff with a full and fair review of the claim because the plan administrator did not describe the specific reasons for the denial of benefits as required by [DOL] regulations" [Napoli v. Johnson & Johnson, Inc. No. 14-31000, (5th Cir. Sept. 8, 2015; unpublished)]
