Ford Motor Company and Unicare Insurance Fired While On Medical Leave Chicago Illinois
*Consumer Comment: Wford@ford.com William Clay Ford
I was fired while on medical leave. I did everything I was supposed to do while on leave. However, the benefit company, Unicare first denied my claim. The benefit company had reached out to me to return to work. However, the date they had me to return to work had already passed. So they sent out a letter with a different date from the date they originally initiated. I wasn't able to return due to my disability. I had submitted an appeal. I was finally approved after I filed my appeal. However, during the whole processes with the benefit company was slow. I was told it only takes 14 days for determination. I was suppose to receive my benefits weekly. However, they took so long approving my claim, I received lump sum of my benefits. I never knew if they needed more information unless I called checking status of claim. I never received my notice of termination. My employer was informed that I never received notice letter. Labor Relations informed me the notice letter came back returned. My doctor continued my medical leave until May 15th 2017. My doctor issued my return date for May 16th 2017. I have documentation stating my return date for my medical leave. I came back May 16th 2017. I worked the whole 10 hours, May 16th 2017. I was never paid for working, May 16th 2017 from 6am-5pm. I have witnesses including, Supervisor seen me worked on May 16th 2017, my return date. Before I started working on my job, I spoke with the Supervisor. I informed the Supervisor, I'm back from medical leave. She insisted me to start up on my job. I didn't find out I was fired until May 17th 2017, when I showed up for work the next day and stopped by Labor Relations. Labor Relations had informed me I been fired since April 10th 2017. They also said they sent out a notice of termination letter, but it came back returned. They also showed me a copy of the mail stating it was returned. So, Ford Motor Company was informed I didn't get my termination notice. I also explained to them I had worked yesterday, May 16th 2017. They told me I need to file grievance. I filed grievance with my union May 17th 2017. I filed for unemployment with Illinois Department of Employment Security. June 21st 2017 I was mailed a letter denying my unemployment with Ford Motor Company. Illinois Department of Employment Security stated the reason I was denied because Ford Motor Company stated I "voluntary leaving". They also stated in details I did not return at the end of the approved leave of absence. I have lost everything due to both of these companies.
