Cirdan’s client, the leaders of an employee union group, entered a lawsuit asserting that reductions to health benefits had been made in a way that was not permissible. The client did not have in-house expertise on employer benefits, claims data or actuarial soundness requirements.
- Cirdan reviewed and critiqued the report prepared by the employer’s expert witness as well as the report prepared by the client’s own expert
- Cirdan was able to identify several problematic assertions made by the employer’s expert
- Cirdan drafted questions for our client’s counsel to use during the litigation process
Ultimately, our client prevailed in the lawsuit. Assuming the results survive appeal, benefits are expected to be restored for employees.
