I am a full-time employee who was offered insurance riders

Customer Question
through an insurance company other...
I am a full-time employee who was offered insurance riders through an insurance company other than my current medical insurance. So, at the time I was offered, it sounded okay, the agent said it pays for itself so I thought I couldn't lose anything. Well, I signed up in October of 2014 and the insurance was to go in effect Jan. 2015. I received my policies in the mail two of them, but after I looked it over, I decided I was not interested in this type of insurance. Also, I was misled by the agent who said the insurance will pay for itself. Because of my discoveries, I decided to cancel my policies. I cancelled within the time allowed to cancel (which was stated in my policy as 30 days. I received a letter confirming my request but the deductions continued. Then the insurance company got in touch with me and told me I couldn't have my refund, nor can I cancel my policies, because of the fact it is pre-tax dollars. Is that correct, why would they print something if it is not possible. I just want my money back for the insurance that I do not want. Is there a 30-day review grace period in Hawaii when you purchase insurance? Do I have a case?

At my job we are not allowed to have phones in the building.
At my job we are not allowed to have phones in the building. We can only access our phones during break times at the locker room area. During my break my 2 friends and i went live on facebook discussing why you shouldn't date at the job. I never the any names, but just examples of a real life scenario that helped on the job that had one of my friends in tears because her boyfriend was cheating on her at the job and that everybody knows he's a player. One of the females who dated the guy as well told him we made a video about him which was not the case. However, he was on lunch break sitting on the floor faraway. When i pointed the camera on my guy friends i said o no there he goes with whitehead phones on and quickly turned the camera away. I also stated that theres a guy who sexual harrass women at the job and some women still date him. Than my human resources director fired me and my other coworker for sexual harassment. I feel that they are trying to cover up the guys actions by reversing it on us. Another associate only recieved a warning for her sexual harassment case. My company picks and chooses who they can term. What should i do? … read more
