medical reimbursement plans

I have a medical reimbursement plan with my current employer. I am leaving them soon and they want me to pay them the amount they would take out of my check each payday from the time I leave to the end of the year. They want this in lump sum when I leave. I signed an agreement when I enrolled in the plan that says they will take the amount I owe out of my last check and that I agree to pay them any amount that is left. They pushed me to sign a promissory note, but I refused and they said it would be a "black mark" on my employment record. Can they do this? Do I have to pay the money to them? I will not be getting the pre-tax benefits so what good is it to me?



They cannot put a black mark in your file if you do not sign that piece of paper. You have a choice within thirty days of your departure, if you want to keep your insurance. With that it sounds like extortion if they are trying to get you to pay the whole year in advance. I would contact the insurance company and find out what your rights are, and maybe the labor board.
Good Luck


I agree with you and Doug. I recommend that you contact immediately an employment law attorney near you. You can find one at attorneypages. You don't want the employer taking money out of your final paycheck that they have no right to. The attorney can help you with this aspect.
