Health Benefits Breach Of Contract Disputes
Employers may not honor their contracts with labor unions, active employees, or retirees. According to the U.S. Department of Labor:
While private-sector employers are not required to provide retiree health benefits, if they choose to offer retiree health benefits, they may cut or eliminate the benefits unless they have made a specific promise to maintain them.
If an employer made a clear promise to provide specific health care benefits for a definite period of time or for life and did not reserve the right to change the plan in any formal written plan document, it should honor this agreement.
When employers fail to honor contracts, we may be able to bring a breach of contract suit against them. Please speak with us about your case to learn how we may help you.
