SAN FRANCISCO – A former driver for Kraft alleges that he was wrongfully terminated from receiving long-term disability benefits.
Christopher Licon filed a complaint on April 4 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against the Kraft Foods Group Inc. Disability Plan alleging that the employer terminated plaintiff's disability plan benefits through its administrator Aetna.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on June 22, 2009, he became disabled and his benefits were paid for a time. The plaintiff holds Kraft Foods Group Inc. Disability Plan responsible because the defendant allegedly terminated plaintiff's disability plan benefits in January 2015 despite sufficient evidence provided by plaintiff that he remains disabled.
The plaintiff seeks payment of long-term disability benefits plus interest, declaration of the plaintiff's rights to receive benefits, interest, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Brian H. Kim and James P. Keenley of Bolt Keenley Kim LLP in Berkeley.
