Case Issue:

Certified Question From The Circuit Court of Calhoun County:

Does the statute of limitations in an alleged breach of contract action against an employer for failure to timely enroll an employee in retirement benefits begin to run when the act breaching the contract occurs and employee knows of the breach?
Circuit Court Answer:
No. The statute of limitations begins to run when the employee is subsequently damaged at retirement through the receipt of less advantageous retirement benefits than they would have received, had they been timely enrolled.
