I was off from a large oil company and set myself up on

Hi my name is Ron. I was laid off from a large oil company and set myself up on COBRA coverage. I set this up with what I thought was auto pay directly through my bank account. It turns out they were not making auto pay and my insurance was canceled as of July 31, 2016. This was an innocent mistake on my part. I should have checked the auto pay. They did receive one payment but the last two were not made. I have the funds to make these payments so that is not the issue. The issue is I thought I was on auto pay. Clearly I had to submit payments myself for each coupon. My issue is I owe for August and now September. I recently had huge doctor bills for an emergency health issue. If COBRA does not reinstate me I am totally in debt for a ton of medical bills.JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.Customer: TexasJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I received a letter from COBRA saying my insurance was terminated due to lack of paymentJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: My main issue is is going to be difficult for me to get reinstated with COBRA insurance when I call them or will I be forced to pay all the medical bills myself?

New dr bought our practice , he is lowering our pay we are going from salary to hourly we are going from 4 day work week to 6 days ( also longer hours) we are expected to be on call for patients at night also - some who have been there for years and earned 3 weeks vacation are now bent told they do not have it unless they were working at the practice for 10 or more years . Can I quit and collect unemployment while I seek a new position? I can not work the hours he requires ( basically anytime he needs us day or night - it's in our new handbook) do we have ANY rights? Even just to leave and pursue new jobs while collecting unemployment ?

I am an hourly employee who oversees the operations of 25

I am an hourly employee who oversees the operations of 25 beauty salons. Most of the time while trying to spend time with my family I receive phone calls, emergencies and problems that have to be attended to. If, for example, I am trying to avoid OT at the request of the company and take a day off and then still have to answer calls and deal with problems should I be paid for the full day? It's a bit like being on call..
