Benefit Payment Disputes

Allegations regarding incorrect payment of benefits include claims such as illegal forfeiture of paid time off and incorrect payment of benefits upon termination.

THE CLAIM

Employees at a leading manufacturer of printers and related supplies alleged that the firm’s use-it-or-lose-it vacation policy was not valid, and the Courts upheld the challenge.

OUR FINDINGS

We were retained to estimate the value of the illegally-forfeited vacation time. Data tracking vacation accrual was maintained, but there was no information regarding the days forfeited by employees. We used the company’s data to estimate the number of days forfeited, the applicable regular rate, total damages, and state-specific penalties. Our findings were presented in expert testimony at trial.
