Judge: ERISA Does Not Apply To Foreign Nationals Working Outside Of United States

PHILADELPHIA - After finding support for a disability claimant's argument that the Employee Retirement Income Security does not apply to foreign nationals working outside of the United States, a Pennsylvania federal judge on Sept. 27 rejected the insurer's argument that the claims are preempted under ERISA and remanded the disability claimant's suit to state court (Salih Bajrami v. Reliance Standard Life Insurance Co., No. 18-162, E.D. Pa., 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 166098).
