FYI, if his dental insurance is provided by his employer, it's not as easy as just going to HR and saying, add my kid to the dental. Virtually all plans nowadays, with only rare exceptions, are subject to IRS Section 125 regulations, which prohibit adding or deleting dependents except during an open enrollment period or when there are specific, IRS approved and plan permitted qualifying events. It's not something you can do whenever you please.
Also FYI, not all BCBS plans include dental. The fact that you called BCBS and they said there is no dental, is NOT proof that your child is not enrolled in a dental plan somewhere. Not all dental plans provide ID cards, and of those that do, not all of them provide ID cards for children.

Two things I am tired of typing: 1.) A wrongful termination does not mean that you were fired for something you didn't do; it means that you were fired for a reason prohibited by law. 2.) The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding contract or CBA expressly says otherwise. If it does, the terms of the contract apply.
