Please excuse the length of this post but I want to make sure that I post all of the facts in order to get a proper answer.
My friend fractured a disc in his lumbar spine by falling down a set of deteriorating cement steps at work while he was working. He was a fulltime employee that was on probation until he was able to gain residence within the township. He is still on workers comp at this time.
On tuesday he received a certified letter stating that the board has decided to terminate his fulltime position and would like him to continue working on a part time capacity at the part time wage when he is able to return from his injury. They cancelled his health insurance as of January 31st. Can they do this while he is on workers comp?
Asside from seeking civil action for the steps does he have any other options?
