I can't think of the circumstantial reason to why, All I know is I was singled out.Just as a point of reference, I do employee benefits for a living. Not just HR, but benefits specifically.
Under no circumstances do you have a workers comp claim. I don't know yet if you have any other kind of claim but you do not, will not, and cannot claim this as workers comp. That's a 100%, carved in stone, you can take it to the bank guarantee. There are no "but what if's" or "not even if..."'s that are going to change that. So let's put that to the side and forget it.
The answer to the question "are you eligible" is crucial. They MAY NOT LEGALLY offer you benefits if you are not eligible for them. It doesn't matter if you should-be-but-aren't; if you aren't, they not only should not, but cannot legally give them to you. So if you are NOT eligible for one reason or another, they can't do anything until you are.
It MIGHT be that if you should be eligible and aren't because of a negligent or discriminatory act on the part of the employer, that you might have some kind of claim but we're a long, long way from establishing that. You're looking for a black and white answer to your question and there isn't one.
Right now I have two questions for you.
1.) Above you said you thought it was discrimination. Discrimination implies a deliberate withholding of a right or benefit. What reason do you believe they are deliberately withholding these benefits? Why do they not want you to have these benefits?
2.) November 23 is four days away. What is supposed to happen on that date?
I feel discriminated because I have been a good hard-working employee and I play by the rules. I also understand that mistakes happen but over and over and over again... where is the accountability?
I don't know why Amazon would want to withhold my benefits. Perhaps it's easier paperwork wise to do everyone at the same time and the fact that mine didn't make it in the appropriate time slot, maybe they are prolonging it for a more convenient opportunity for them. I'm just guessing here.
I can't think of a logical explanation to why.
I do get the feeling they want me to quit though.
I assume on the 23rd I'll be able to use dental benefits or I'll be able to sign up. I'm not sure what exactly happens on this date
