Divorce pension center ‘fails to provide adequate benefits’
A former retirement home administrator in the city of U.C. Berkeley has filed a $30 million suit against the state of California, alleging that the California Department of Labor and Industries (CalILI) and the California State Retirement System (CalSER) failed to provide the former employee with adequate benefits, according to the California Labor News Network.
The lawsuit, filed on Wednesday in the California Supreme Court, alleges that former state employee, Mark Boulton, was terminated from the U.S. Department of Education’s (ED) Retirement and Disability Benefits Program (RDBP) in April 2018 after working for the department for two years.
The complaint also alleges that the RDBP failed to give the former RDBP employee the proper benefits and services and did not provide him with access to any other programs that were available to him.
It is the second lawsuit filed by the former resident of Berkeley, who was awarded $7.5 million by the state in a wrongful termination lawsuit filed in 2015.
He claimed that he was terminated for failing to meet expectations and performance standards.
