  • Disabled and company being sold California

    I just went out on disability a week ago in California and now I find out that our company is being sold within the next month and I will most likely lose my job. Can the new owners terminate me at any time or must they wait until 3 months are up? I am expected to be ready for work in about 3 months. Also, am I able to keep my medical benefits until I lose my job? Thanks in advance!

    If the company is being sold next month then you can lose your job next month. Disability benefits do not provide job protection at all, and even if you are on FMLA, that does not protect you from terminations that would have happened anyway. No, they have no legal obligation (and probably no legal ability) to maintain your health insurance until your disability benefits are up.

    The terms of the sale should NOT affect your disability benefits, however.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

      Thanks cbg. One more question...would I still be able to get UI benefits after I am off disability?

        When you are medically released to work & off DI benefits, you can file for unemployment ins.
