    My sister is employed at a special needs group home in MN (no problems, good reviews). She had a back surgery in the winter and was out for a month recuperating. Last month she found out that she has stage 4 colon cancer, had colon/liver surgery and has to be off six weeks. She was told today that she is employed only 80 hours more and then she will be terminated due to their 'work policy'. Is that legal? She will lose health insurance and also be forced to pay COBRA.

    What are the specific laws in MN? Who do we contact?

    How long has she worked there, how many hours did she work in the past year and are there at least 50 employees within a 75 mile radius? How much time total has she missed in the past year for medical reasons?

    What exactly is the work rule?
    I post with the full knowledge and support of my employer, though the opinions rendered are my own and not necessarily representative of their position. In other words, I'm a free agent.
