My family and I lost our house in a tragic fire in Charlestown, RI on April 25, 2010. We barely escaped with our lives, and very little else. After a month, I felt obligated to return to work - as my employer had been very gracious with giving me the time off to do whatever was necessary right after the fire. Once I returned to work, I really struggled for a few months, with my high stress (management) job and everything else that I was dealing with. It was determined that I was suffering from stress and anxiety, and my doctor took me out of work on Aug 11. I've been collecting TDI benefits from the State of RI, and going to therapy as well as seeing my doctor. I have been sending in my portion of my health/dental benefits ($) to my employer. I have been out of work for 13 weeks now. Today, I received a letter that (effective Nov 11) I've been terminated from employment. Not only do I look at this as cold-hearted, but is it even legal? And if so - can I continue to collect TDI benefits for the remainder (30 wks total)? And what do I do after TDI runs out? Can I file for unemployment? Understandably, my wife and I are very upset. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
