A former Proctor and Gamble employee denies the allegations in a lawsuit alleging his employer 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 alleges in its Dec. 8 lawsuit that Adam L. Holloman applied for benefits under the company’s disability benefit plan. In his plan, Holloman agreed that any benefits offered to him under the plan would be reduced by any governmental benefits he received, the suit states.
On April 1, 2006, Holloman allegedly began receiving disability benefits from Proctor and Gamble. At the same time, social security was issuing a check for $1,721 per month to Holloman. However, Holloman never informed Proctor and Gamble of the extra pay, violating his agreement with the company, the plaintiff claims.
“As a result of the foregoing, defendant received overpayments of $68,840 from plaintiff,” the suit states.
Proctor and Gamble claims it has repeatedly demanded repayment, but Holloman failed to pay the company.
In addition to the money it alleges Holloman owes it, the plaintiff seeks other relief the court deems just.
Holloman denied the allegations against him in his Jan. 22 answer to the complaint.
Circuit Judge Robert LeChien scheduled a status conference for June 2 at 9:30 a.m.
James E. Skinner represents Proctor and Gamble.
Holloman is represented by Thomas B. Cannady of Cannady & AuBuchon in Belleville.
