Customer Question

My sister was on FMLA short term for 12 weeks (has multiple health issues). The day after the ST disability expired, her employer contacted her via phone and terminated her employment and refused to send her written confirmation of why. She paid in her employee benefits, both ST and LT disability benefits and you'd think that a brain tumor and other health related issues would have been considered before they did that. Why didn't the LT disability NOT kick in?? Now she is without insurance, prescription refills , in pain and is scrambling to seek government assistance as she can't afford a cobra plan.
Shame on this employer to have done this!
