Hello, I have a very important question relating to my FMLA
benefits. I had cardiac arrest on Nov3 of 2014. After being in the hospital almost 4 weeks, experiencing a coma, respirators and a trach. I was sent home with what has been determined as a paralysis in my larynx which does not allow me to return to work as certified flight attendant.
Now I have not been able to return to work since Nov. yet I faithfully every month have kept my employers Mesa Airlines of Phoenix Arizona in the loop with doctors updates.
For some reason ( which I am shocked and upset about ) the employer Mesa sent me an email on June 22nd, 2015 ( never called ) stating as of June 30th ( which was in 7 days and 10 hours ) that my insurance benefits would terminate.
Then on Friday they sent a mailman to knock on my door and give me a letter stating my benefits would end the next day as a disabled employee.
I never ever even got a 60 day or even 30 day notice.
I immediately emailed and called them on Monday to help me understand this gross error.
No one called me back. Now today on July 1st the day it was suppose to cancel; I had to keep calling the company .
MY DISABLITLITY IS A PARALYSIS IN MY LARYNX WHICH MAKES IT HARD FOR ME TO TALK MORE THAN 10 MINUTES AT A TIME. IT ALSO MAKES ME BREATH FUNNY WHEN UNDER EXTREME STRESS OR UPSET. WHICH I WAS KNOWING THEY NEVER GAVE NOTICE AND TERMINATED MY INSURANCE BENEFITS.
KEY POINT: I AM REQUIRED TO SEE EITHER MY HEART OR LARYNX DOCTOR EVERY MONTH AND HAD MAJOR THROAT SURGERY SCHEDULED FOR JULY 15TH 2015.
I BELIEVE THAT THEY HAVE VIOLATED MY FAIR LABOR
EMPLOYEE/EMPLOYER RELATIONS AS AN EMPLOYEE ON LTD.
I ALSO DO NOT BELIEVE IT WAS LAWFUL TO JUST CUT OFF DISCONTINUE MY MEDICAL BENEFITS WITHOUT NOTIFICATION.
CAN YOU PLEASE ADVISE?
MY DIRECT NUMBER IS #***-***-****
NAME IS LADONNA
******* I THINK I NEED TO PURSUE THIS LEGALLY ******
