California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
XXXXXXXX MD again... I responded to the EDD letter about my employee who quit "involuntary resignation" due to harrassment at work.. That was over a week ago. Today I sent the employee a letter explaining that since she had resigned in the first week of October I covered her medical insurance through the end of the month. And I had also replaced her position a week ago... since I had no one at the front desk... Here is her reply... so now what do I do... I have NOT Resigned! EDD has been switched to Disability 10/11/13 through 12/21/13.You should have been notified or will be asap. I am forced to be on Medical Disability after 19 years of my life dedicated to your practice and patients without complaints until the last week I was able to work. If you had responded to my faxes or made a call as to my well being after 19 years I would have explained. But you didn't. ” There is no trying to talk to you” as Karen pointed out, and Leilani tried several times to talk to you,, XXXXXX MD is still my employer, has you have not fired me and I have NOT resigned! AS my employer , you are also still legally responsible for my ALL medical benefits, Profit sharing and any of your portion of AFLAC. signed, XXXXXXX 10/30/2013
Since she resigned legallly in writing to the EDD, why am I still legally responsible for her medical bills and her position ?
What are my rights?
How should I respond to her?
