ED Magedson – Founder
Sedgwick - CMSPO Box 14575 Lexington, Kentucky United States of America
I was employed by Chrysler from 1997 to 2009. I was always a good " salaried" employee with above average reviews every year. I had a very difficult last 2 years: worrying about my job and my plant closing, my mother and grandmother passing away in the same year, having to worry about my fathers mental and physical health ( while Chrysler is trying to force me to relocate to Detoit, Michigan ), in a auto accident - totaling a car, lost a different car in a flash flood- while I was in it, laws suits & court dates over some land I live on, problems with one of my sons, etc. etc. I could not relocate to Detroit, MI. I had a hardship case with my family ! Chrysler made me go to Detroit, MI for two weeks with the understanding the two weeks would be temporary.
Once I arrived in Detroit, I was told I was on the new plant's roll and the position was permanent. I was misled, lied to, and tricked. Chrysler constantly tried to make me sign a relocation document to move to Michigan ( saying it was a condition of employment) and I wouldn't sign it. After two weeks in Detroit, MI, I was sent back to my home plant in Fenton, MO to learn of my fate. I was having some physical medical issues, combined with anxiety and depression. I saw my Doctor again, for the 2nd time, and he put me on more medication, and put me out on medical leave for a short time.
While I was out on leave, I saw a counselor, a cardiologist, my primary physician, and a pysciatrist. All Doctors said I was suffering from Anxiety & Depression ! I had to file a claim with Sedgwick CMS, Chrysler's 3rd party administrator. MY Doctors had to fill out several documents and Sedgwick still denied my claim. I was still employed by Chrysler. I don't understand how Sedgwick can deny my claim, when 3 different Doctors diagnosed me with the same problem. So I have had no income ( Nothing !) for over two months. I was released to go back to work on 10-14-09. I showed up for work and was terminated on my first day back, within the first two hours. Chrysler said I resigned. I did not sign anything saying I resigned.
I disagreed with Chrylser and my my hthought be known. Chrysler said I resigned, because I didn't take the job in Detroit, Mi. A drive that is approximately 10 hours away. I could not leave my father in his condition. I asked Chrysler if they could put at a plant closer to my home, where I could at least commute home on the weekends. Chrysler said no ! Chrysler did not try to accomodate in any way, shape, or form ! What Can I do ? #1) I was terminated with no severance, layoff benefits, or insurance #2) I never received any short term disability for the medical leave I was on while I was still employed at Chrysler.
