Releases of employment-related claims may unintentionally release ERISA benefit claims

Signing a severance agreement or settlement agreement with an employer that contains a general release may unintentionally bar a claimant from pursuing a disability benefit claim under ERISA.  That was the lesson learned by Dr. Thomas Gonda, Jr., who worked as a thoracic surgeon at Kaiser Permanente until he became disabled due to cognitive impairments and substance abuse problems following treatment for a subdural hematoma.
