Customer Question

I work salary as Director of Emergency, I was at work on 5/26 with angina chest pain, I didnt want to be admitted becasue I had 2 boys at home. I came back next day had stress test that was read by cardiologist as positive. He too me off work for week, over weekend had chest pain and was admitted and had heart catherization on 6/1 was told not to return to work until 6/8, I followed up with pcp and she said not to follow up until 6/24 when appt was with cardiologisdt.
I turned in letter of resignation on 6/3 due to my health and told them may last day would be on 7/1 I would work a 1 month notice. I find out today I was terminated on 5/5/15 and told not to come back.
They terminated my short term disability on 5/31/15 so I didnt even turn in resignation until 6/3

This is in the state of Mexico. Nothing was told to me about the last day being 5/31/15. I am transferring to a sister hospital so my employment should have continued, I was scheduled to start there June 22. So how can they end my benefits prior to letter of resignation with notes from doctos and cardiologist to be off work.
