I fractured my ankle on October 9, 2009 at work. The walk-in clinic I was sent to put me on full workman's compensation and made an appointment for me to see an orthopedic physician. I requested he allow me to return to work half days until it healed as half my job is performed sitting at a computer. It is now November 18th and I have still not received one dime of compensation.
Lorraine sent a check for $200.00 on Oct. 29th, then proceeded to contact our HR rep the following day stating she was stopping payment on the check and I was instructed to mail it back to her, because the amount should have only been $15.31. I make $19.25 per hour, and I was due 40 hours. Our HR rep contacted her and questioned her on how she arrived at this figure. She came up with some pretty creative mathematics and convinced our HR rep that it was all I was due.
I contacted an attorney, who assured me that was impossible. Now Lorraine seems to have fallen off the face of the earth, she will not answer anyones calls or respond to anyones emails. My last doctor appointment's x-ray showed the fracture is still visible, despite that, I have had to return to work full time with restrictions, this in turn aggravates my employer, upsets my coworkers and in general stinks.
The bills are piling up, I am so stressed out from working in a hostile environment that I've even contemplated suicide. I can't wrap my head around how this type of thing goes on. I did everything by the book, I even went above and beyond working half days so my company did not have to hire a temp to fill in for me and this is the slap in the face I get.
Lorraine should be fired and denied unemployment compensation that way she can experience first hand what she does to people, and I'm sure she has done this before, get this her title is Senior WC Claims Representive. She must save the company loads of money on the backs of poor people like me.
