Customer Question

My wife lost her job on July 14 2016 and on July 16 2016 our medical coverage was cancelled. We were given no notice and were not given the option of paying the premium our self. Is this legal ? My wife was terminated for what was called unsatisfactory work. She is a dietitian by trade with a master degree and over 30 years of experience in this field. We really believe age was the reason.

Thank you for the information and your question. Just for clarification, what do you mean that she contacted the employer to no avail? What exactly did the employer say? Also, did the employer ever tell her that she was terminated for gross misconduct?
