Hartford Insurance Denies Disability Benefits and Pays Millions to bail out a town
Imagine that an injury results in you being disabled and unable to return to work. You apply for long term disability but Hartford, your insurance company, denies your benefits. You don’t have any savings and no other source of income. And then you find out that Hartford, along with two other insurance companies, bails out the town of Hartford for millions of dollars – and not even their policyholders.

Ninth Circuit Says Pension Plan Participants Cannot be Forced to Arbitrate
Ninth Circuit Says Pension Plan Participants Cannot be Forced to Arbitrate
San Francisco, CA On July 24, 2018, the Ninth Circuit held that the plaintiffs in a pension plan lawsuit could continue their legal fight as a class action, rather than having to arbitrate individually.Munro v. University of Southern California is a major victory for ERISA plan participants who were required to sign individual arbitration agreements as a condition of employment. The Court likened these ERISA lawsuits to whistle blower lawsuits–essentially viewing the plaintiffs as public prosecutors acting in defense of the pension plan itself. This is a very broad argument that may ultimately have wider legal implications.

SoCal Drywall Company Fined $1.9M for Wage Theft Violations
Fullerton, CA According to California’s Division of Labor Standards Enforcement, it is a known problem: construction companies often pay workers a flat rate rather than for all hours worked, in order to evade having to pay workers the rate required under state laws. This is wage theft, and it is a violation of California state labor laws. The state Labor Commissioner’s Office began an investigation into Fullerton Pacific Interiors Inc. (“Fullerton’s”) practices after employees reported the company to a nonprofit labor management organization, Carpenters Contractors Cooperation Committee. The outcome of that investigation was a $1.9 million dollar penalty, to be distributed primarily to the workers who were shorted pay.
