Ask your question and a long-term disability lawyer will answer in minutes
I am approved for long term disability in late July this year for 6 months. I got a call from my manager informing me that the company is under re-organization, and I will be terminated on about October 24. I will get a formal letter from HR in this or next week. On the call, he told me that he has a position(much lower pay than my current pay) at another company, he will personally connecting me to hiring manager. He told me to apply ASAP as many applicants on first day of posting. He also asked me to send my resume to his personal email. With my current disability, should I take his advice applying the job? Thanks
If an employer terminates an employee based on frustration of contract, would severance still apply based on the severance pay calculator? Thank you.
I have been on long-term sick leave from my employer since 2015. I am considering taking a part time time job to supplement my income. I would like to know if I am allowed to do this and how many hours a week would I be permitted to work. I certainly do not want to jeopardize my current income from the insurance company (Manulife Financial)
My son is employed by the Liquor Distribution Branch in Vancouver, BC. He has been off work since December due to a substance abuse problem (he is an alcoholic). The doctor who diagnosed him for the LDB has stipulated that he must attend a 60 day residential treatment program before he can return to work. He is an Auxiliary employee so he does not have benefits. His total income last year was $22,000. There is no way he can afford a residential treatment program which he has been told will cost between $7,000 - $10,000. And now with Covid, the wait lists are between 6-12 months. He has been to a 7 day Detox program (in April), but is struggling with continuing treatment of his addiction. How can the LDB demand something that he cannot afford as a condition of him returning to work?
I am currently on Ltd through my company’s group plan through rbc for just under a year now and they have sent me an education form asking for my education, computer skills and if I want to speak with a vocational rehabilitation specialist. What is this? Should I answer yes or no? I am not yet recovered. I assume they are trying to figure out the fit for my job versus any job scenario . I only have high school education and went straight to my current work place where I’ve been for over 20 years and make very good money so not sure where a vocational specialist would fit in. I don’t think there are any accommodations that could be made but am thinking i should say yes or it will appear as I’m refusing to have them try? Any advice?
