HOUSTON – A Harris County man has initiated legal action in an effort to recoup what he asserts are back retirement benefits from Chevron.
Bill Boydston filed a lawsuit against the San Ramon, Calif.-based multinational energy corporation on May 23 in the Harris County 165th District Court, calling the defendant’s retirement plan into question.
Chevron reportedly has two different versions of the plan: one for people hired before Jan. 1, 2008 and one for employees hired after Jan. 1, 2008.
According to the original petition, Boydston received a retirement check in the amount of $208,648.34, which was “approximately half the amount that (he) is entitled to” for his years of service to Chevron.
Boydston says the respondent hired him to return before Jan. 1, 2008, stating he was told all of his benefits would be unaffected.
The plaintiff adds Chevron failed to inform that his first day of work after Jan. 1, 2008 would change his benefits package.
Consequently, he seeks unspecified monetary damages.
Craig R. Keener of Houston is representing the complainant.
