Short term disability appeal claim denied. My disability
Short term disability appeal claim denied. My disability started on 6/17/2016 and I went on disability because my boss blew up at me for the third time and the stress was just too much. I come from an abusive childhood as well as an abusive marriage and just broke down from the stress. I did go to a doctor because I had uncontrollable diarrhea that seemed to start whenever it wanted to and I had no control. The doctor I first saw who was my family doctor he saw me twice then he decided to transfer and I has to wait at least a couple of weeks to see his replacement. My job is a Customer Service Rep in an insurance agency and according to The Hartford they don't see any reason why I couldn't do my job...I tried to explain about the diarrhea but they said that wasn't good enough????

I took an early retirement from Kaiser Permanente because
I took an early retirement from Kaiser Permanente because they were trying to down size. I was offered 708.50 per month for the rest of my life. This was in 2003. They have now lowered by pension to 488.20 because they are claiming they made a mistake figuring out my pension.JA: Have you documented this or discussed it with HR?Customer: Yes, They sent me an amount of $47,000 + or - saying it was an underpayment of my Northwest Health plan pension in September 2015 direct deposited into my checking account and in the time before that money was deposited they sent me a form to fill out to say if I wanted it rolled over into an IRA. I said yes roll it 100% over into an IRA I had set up with Waddell and Reed. Well they sent me a check made out to me and Waddell and Reed for $78,000 appx which I sent on to my IRA. Then after that check arrived and was sent on they direct deposited the $47,000. I called them right away in September of 2015 and asked why did they deposit the $47,000 into my checking where I get my pension direct deposited And How could they posible lower my Pension to $488.21 when I had been promised $708.50 and had actually been receiving that amount for the last 12 years.JA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: I worked for Kaiser in several different positions. part time, Full Time and Union at the very end of my employment with them. 1983 I started in a part time Local 49 position then went to full time in The fall. Then I went to dental Hygiene School with Kaiser's help $600.+ per term and got my associate degree - while working 20 hours a week in Labor and Delivery Local 4 position. Then in 1987 January I went to work in the Dental Department as a Dental Hygienist, This was full time but at the time not a union position., They I worked my way up to management in the Dental Hygiene Department. I will have to look at the resume to see how long I worked in Management. I then got tendonitis so they transferred me to medical (1991) Where I worked in Management (Medical Clinical Coordinator until 1995) at which time I returned to Dental as Dental Hygiene Supervisor until 2000 When I went back into Dental hygiene which was then Union until they offered me the early retirement. At the time I told them to make sure they looked at all my back employment with Kaiser, Because I had worked in so many different positions. They assured me they had and gave me the offer. I could have received more if I had chosen the 20 year pay off. But I have longevity in my family so when I figured it out I was a head to take the 20 years and Life pension they offered me if I live to be 90. I am now 69.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I just want to know if they can lower my pension after making me an early retirement offer and after all this time?

Just got laid off. Told my position was no longer needed by the company, but they also just hired a consultant that will be doing exactly what I was doing. Long story short. They moved my position to another dept last November, the new manager hired new workers and was going to lay me off then, but my current boss kept me in another position as he needed my skills. 2 months ago, my boss up and quit and I got moved to that other dept anyway and am now being laid off. They only offered me 3 weeks severance. Just wondering if I have any recourse for a better severance?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: UtahJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: I'm pretty sure it was "at will".

I was just off after being contracted out to a large
I was just laid off after being contracted out to a large Integrated Facility Management firm 3.5 years ago. Company allowed me to carry over my 13 years of seniority and pay of $78,000. The new firm said that they could provide facility management services for a set amount. After a year or so they realized they were short funds plus did not figure taxes into the budget which came to a large amount. They were going to let me go (bc of my pay)to make up some of the shortfall, but decided not to bc I was a valued employee and they transferred my pay to corporate office. Shortly after, I began working offsite for corporate and after a year they have decided to release me so that they can realize their savings in the coming year. They did not say that but it is obvious. I make double what my coworkers make. I am 60 years old. They have offered me 6 weeks severance. I feel like the severance is based on the last three years and not my 16 years of seniority. Should I seek counsel for the severance pay? And, i feel as though i have been discriminated against because my pay was high bc of my age and service. ??JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

My daughter transferred to a different facility as an
My daughter transferred to a different facility as an Assistant Director of Nursing. The Director of Nursing who hired her for the transfer had been fired a few weeks before my daughter transferred. The facility administrator is good friends with the Chief Nursing Officer. My daughter has felt that the Chief Nursing Officer did not like her but liked the work she did at her previous facility. She started at the new facility on Tuesday. Ever since she walked in the door the facility administrator has been yelling at her and finding fault with everything she is doing. My daughter was successful in her last position as an assistant director of nursing. The administrator has told her she wants to account for every minute of her time and she has yelled at my daughter every day since she arrived on the job. It is one week and my daughter is looking for a new job.
