DOL files petition to compel Illinois company to furnish documents sought in employee benefits investigation

By Pension and Benefits Editorial Staff

The U.S. Department of Labor has filed a petition asking the U.S. District Court in the Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division, to enforce an administrative subpoena the department served to Alight Solutions LLC, based in Lincolnshire, Illinois. The subpoena seeks documents for an Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA) investigation to determine compliance with the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA).

Alight Solutions LLC has refused to provide all documents requested by the Department of Labor in the Nov. 5, 2019, subpoena. As a result, the department's Chicago Regional Solicitor's Office has filed this action to compel compliance with the subpoena.

“Complying with U.S. Department of Labor subpoenas is not optional,” said Employee Benefits Security Administration Regional Director Jeffrey Monhart, in Chicago, Illinois. “This case demonstrates the Department's commitment to protecting employee benefits.”
