On May 25th my disc broke off on L4 of my vertebrae. I had surgery June 10. I had exhausted my vacation and of course signed up for the FMLA
. I have been in constant contact with my employer through the entire process. I was able to receive Short Term disability
, that I paid into. My last appointment with my neurologist was August 16 at which time they ordered PT for the first time, and gave me a release of Sept. 1. On August 17 I emailed my employer that notice. On August 25, I received, by registered mail, a letter in which it was stated that I no longer had a job due to the necessity to fill that position. No prior warning, now I cannot go to PT because I have no insurance and it is $150.00 per visit. I was scheduled to go 3x a week. I need that therapy because the muscles in my back are so tight they couldn't even release the muscle physically because they were afraid it would tear. Now, I cant go, I have no job, and my husbands insurance wont be effective for 90 days and most certainly will not pay for a pre-existing condition. To top off everything and a complete gut wrenching stab in the back the Director of Human Resources hired her son to take my job as Business Center Manager (from making sandwiches at the same employer) He is so inept he is taking computer classes during work! He has just become a father and is getting married soon. So, his mother, HR Director, just made his life very nice and mine an almost Hell.
JA: Because employment law
varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: I'm in tears and would like to know if anyone would think I have a case yet. I don't want to waste my or anyone's time.
