He called the insurance company who said it's a group policy, and he has to go through his employer. He called hr again today and she said there was a lapse in insurance; somehow someone forgot to pay the insurance company.
Since he didn't go to the doctor yesterday because his insurance is lapsed through no fault of his own, he has been fired for missing work without an excuse. He had sick days, so what's the deal?!
WTF?? We have already called an attorney and are going to sue for wrongful termination and get all our insurance premiums back. We are livid.
Btw--all conversations are recorded at his work.
Update: I am back now. He says we do have a case. Everything was recorded, because the company records all phone conversations. Dh signed a policy at the beginning of the year that differed from what his boss told him. We will be contacting the hr/legal dept at his company this week or next.
Right to work or at will still does not allow to be fired without recourse. While a company can fire you, they must give the unemployment office a reason. Dh had not had a single makes on his service record for the last 11 years. He hasn't been late in three years, and hasn't missed a single day of work since April 2008 when ds was born. He is very adamant about his work. He is a building inspector and had uncovered where his company was letting things slide through without actually being checked so we believe that's why he was fired. We have proof of this shady business.
