ERISA administrator report substance abuse to employer

Can an ERISA plan administrator tell an employer about an employee’s substance abuse?

Doesn’t that breach fiduciary duties to the employee/claimant? Probably not.

Check the employer’s employment policies because an ERISA plan administrator’s “[c]ompliance with [an employer’s drug/alcohol] policy cannot constitute breach of fiduciary duty.”

This new case highlights the point. Williams v. FedEx
