fired on disability
I see you can be fired while on disability. the employer needs to hold no job no longer than 12 weeks if you worked a yr or 1250 hours or something like that. I just started this job May 12, I work as a cook in a school w/ an outside food service co. I left May 30 to have back surgery. SO i only missed like 10 days which was no problem(then they were closed for summer) and now I have missed 1 day of the new school year. All my phone msgs 6-10, 8-22, and email msgs 8-29 to inform them I won't be ready to return to work have gone unanswered. I see I don't fall into the 1 year employment catagory. But don't they still have to contact me to tell me I'm fired? Should I formally resign? Or should I just consider myself fired and move on?

Re: fired on disability
You can assume that you are no longer employed by the company. However, please let me know how you got hurt. If you were hurt on the job then there are financial and possibly medical benefits that I can get for you through workers compensation. A lot of times employers won't tell you that you are entitled to workers compensation benefits. I am an attorney who has handled hundreds of workers compensation cases throughout New Jersey in the past. Please contact me to discuss your case in more detail. I never charge for simply talking to a person about their case. Thank you.
