What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?
A friend of mine is out on private disability ins. He went to his employer to ask to come back to work on light duty, as they have given light duty to other workers. He was told there isn't enough work to begin with. Followed by a phone call stating there just isn't enough work. He ask at that time, am I laid off or fired? No answer just a statement lack of work. Since, he was sent a letter stating he would no longer have any medical coverage paid for and what he wanted to do about his 401k plan.
Question being: He was never told anything with regard to his work and can you be let go of employment while receiving disability coverage?
He doesn't want to answer this letter until he can get some legal advice.
