  • Withheld Insurance

    My wife worked for a Virginia non-profit agency that merged with another non-profit agency. She had been there 3-1/2 years on part-time salary with out a raise or review. Right after the merger, all of the new incoming employees got their scheduled 4% raise that they had coming prior to the merger. My wife got upset and quit. When she received her last pay stub, they had deducted for her insurance (paid a month in advance). When she went to get prescriptions yesterday, they had already dropped her from the insurance that she had withheld from her last check. She should still be covered through the end of the month of October. Also, she just got a letter from the insurance co dated the 10/11/05 stating that she was cancelled on 9/30/05. Thanks for any help/advice you can give.

    Also, she was never offered COBRA and they have over 20 employees on staff.

    What was the last day she actually worked?
    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.

      They got paid twice a month, her last day was on the 22nd, but the whole month's insurance was withheld.

        Considering that she almost certainly was covered on the insurance before she'd actually had any premiums taken out back when she first started with this employer, that is not illegal.

        What concerns me is that the insurance was cancelled retroactively. While that is not necessarily illegal, it's uncommon enough so that she might want to place a call to the state insurance commission and see what they have to say.
