MIAMI – A former Egistics Inc. employee has filed suit seeking reinstatement of disability benefits he alleges was wrongfully terminated.
Michael Jackson filed a complaint on Dec. 8 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Principal Life Insurance Co. citing the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in 2013, he became disabled and was receiving disability benefits until the benefits were terminated by the defendant in January. The plaintiff holds Principal Life Insurance Co. responsible because the defendant allegedly upheld its decision to deny plaintiff's disability benefits despite being disabled according to the terms of the policy.
The plaintiff seeks payment of disability benefits, immediate reinstatement, all legal fees and interest plus any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Alexandra A. Palamara and Gregory Michael Dell of Attorneys Dell and Schaefer, Chartered in Hollywood.
