Group of Employees v. Employee Leasing Company
We successfully negotiated a dismissal of our client from a suit involving alleged failure to provide health insurance. Certain employees claimed that our client was liable as the successor to a prior company which had experienced problems in setting up a self-insured ERISA plan. The prior company had utilized a third party administrator (TPA) to procure excess insurance coverage and to handle medical claims, but the TPA failed to procure the insurance or pay the claims. After investigating the claims for coverage under the ERISA plan, and analyzing the issues of successor liability, we obtained a dismissal of our client from the litigation.
