7 office employees and 50 drivers-some that are part time. It is a medical transportation service. I do the accounting for this employer, the office employees have been covering me since all the medical stuff has been going on.
Most of the drivers are independent contractors. Does that make a difference in my employment since I am in the office? Or does that have to do with the amount of actual employees the owner has to have? It is a small business.
Are there any laws that can protect me from being fired? I have kept in contact with them the whole time I have been out. Any help is appreciated.
I had a lithotripsy to break up multiple stones in my left kidney. Then I developed a complication to that surgery which resulted in a hematoma..in my kidney...this is a very rare complication. Then last week I had another cat scan and they found a stone stuck in my ureter and had emergency surgery to remove that stone.
Again I have been having constant contact with my employer. But they are now threaten me with my job.
Under HIPPA laws do I have to release my medical information to the employer?
If I do get terminated, would I be able to get unemployment under wrongful termination or something like that?
Thank you for your assistance.
Just one more question, the part where you said if I do get terminated, other than making a claim, I would likely get the unemployment.
Does that mean that if I want unemployment then I do or do not make a claim for discrimination?
Or am I allowed to do both in this situation? Sorry just a little confused.
Thank you again and I will Rate you as soon as this question is answered.
