I am going to start where I left off from our last talk. I went and had my mri done and the neuroligist said I was fine and that the tingling was due to me sleeping crooked and cuased a hip misplacement. The insurance company magically lost all the information regarding them telling me I had to have this MRI done. So I went to an attorney and they had me go to a new doctor to get the clearance for surgery from another surgeon. The surgery is scheduled on January 3rd. My question for you is that due to all this time waiting, my fmla has ran out and now my position has been posted at my job. I spoke to my manager about coming back at a part time work to see if I can handle it until I have surgery provided my doctor gave the ok & she said no. So now, I am in a position of me possibly losing my job. I received a letter from my fmla & it reads that my position at my location is no longer protected & once I am well, if it is in within 2 years of the accident, they will give me 90 days to search for a new position within the company. If no one hires me I am out of a job. My question is can they do this? The doctor I am seeing says they can. I don't quite see how this is fair when none of this was my fault & the time the insurance company is taking to get me approved has over ran the length of my fmla coverage.
Just so you know, I just saw that I had to hit confirm on the service, I didnt know that..
