I filed a lawsuit for wrongful termination and the company wants to settle.
Problem is they will not provide the medical benifits I had earned after 25 years. I was eligible for medical at 15% of cost, but now the company says they cannot provide medical coverage because their plan will not allow it. I think this is bull.
Does anyone know about this? I do not see why I cannot be given the benifit now.
Thanks.

i think asking legal advice on an internet forum is not such a hot idea. why not ask the lawyer you filed with?

It could be a negotiating ploy on their part. Have your lawyer ask for proof by them providing the policy terms and costs.

You're a step closer than me..."the company wants to settle."

32 yrs in the trenches, but 'adios option' came 6 wks prior to retirement eligibility for me.

The attorneys for our 100,000+ 'out-sourced' employees + my own lawyer indicated 0-1% chance of recourse.

I am not impressed, as medical coverage from age 49-65 could have come in handy., as well as a pension at age 65

I dont have any advice but I'm so sorry, stealth. That seems so wrong.
