Proctor and Gamble alleges it overpaid nearly $70,000 in disability benefits to a man who was also receiving social security benefits without the company's knowledge.
Proctor and Gamble filed a lawsuit Dec. 8 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Adam L. Holloman.
In its complaint, Proctor and Gamble alleges Holloman applied for benefits under the company's disability benefit plan. Under the plan, Holloman agreed that any benefits offered to him under the plan would be reduced by any governmental benefits he received, according to the complaint.
Beginning April 1, 2006, Holloman received disability benefits from Proctor and Gamble, the suit states. At the same time, social security was issuing a check for $1,721 per month to Holloman, the complaint says. However, Holloman never informed Proctor and Gamble of the extra pay, violating his agreement with the company, it claims.
"As a result of the foregoing, defendant received overpayments of $68,840 from plaintiff," the suit states.
Although Proctor and Gamble has repeatedly demanded repayment, Holloman has failed to repay the company, the complaint says.
In addition to the money it alleges Holloman owes it, Proctor and Gamble seeks other relief the court deems just.
Attorney James E. Skinner will represent Proctor and Gamble.
