Cavalluzzo LLP launches class action against Enbridge Inc and Enbridge Gas Inc. The class action alleges that for a period of over 30 years, Enbridge has failed to properly credit employees on parental, maternity, and/or pregnancy leaves with pension service in their defined benefit pension plans. As a result, Enbridge employees across Canada who have taken a parental or pregnancy leave since 1990 may be missing years of service in their pension plans. These employees will see an unfairly reduced pension benefit upon retirement.

The Class Plaintiff, Susan Williams, took two parental leaves, the first in 1995-96, and the second in 1999-2000. Upon leaving Enbridge in 2019, Ms. Williams realized that she was missing two years of service in her pension plan. As a result, her expected benefits upon retirement were significantly reduced.

The class action seeks damages to make the class whole, by properly crediting their lost service and adjusting their pension accounts. The class action also seeks various other damages on account of Enbridge’s failure to properly administer its defined benefit pension plans, including human rights damages on the basis of sex, gender and family status.
