12/7/2018: Scope of ERISA and Occupation-Specific Disability (DeBofsky, Sherman & Casciari, PC)
"The question the court had to resolve was whether McCann's prior employer made 'contributions' to or 'endorsed' the program ... The court concluded that allowing the program to be publicized to employees was not enough, but 'endorsement exists where there is some showing of material employer involvement in the creation or administration of a plan.' ... [T]he court ... found relevant the fact that Henry Ford Hospital had encouraged its residents to enroll in the disability program and recommended the residents purchase the coverage offered by Provident." [McCann v. Unum Provident, No. 16-2014 (3d Cir. Oct. 5, 2018)]
