David Rintoul presented the education program on ERISA Basics For Labor & Employment Law Attorneys for the November 12, 2013 meeting of the Connecticut Employment Lawyers Association or “CELA.” The program covered what an attorney needs to know when sitting with a client with a prospective ERISA benefit claim. He discussed appeals of long-term disability benefit denials and other employee benefits with the insurers, and why pursuing the process effectively is crucial to any litigation of ERISA benefit appeals. CELA is an organization for lawyers who spend at least fifty percent of their employment practice representing employees.
David presented a similar program to the Labor & Employment Section of the Connecticut Bar Association in the fall. David is currently Treasurer of the Section, and is Chair of the sections Retirement and Employee Benefits Sub-Committee
