the benefits are not the issue.....the issue is getting a job back with the company ...they said i went on medical leave on good terms,...they exended the medical leave period for a very generous time...i spoke with my former boss there and he said he would approve of me returning...now they are just passing the buck back and forth in letting me know if i can return...could they not rehire me because of my illness?like i stated i am currently on their cobra plan and have 11 months left on it...but i want to come back to work...what can the legally and not legally do with me?
