My employer wont give me a form i need.?
I’m 32 weeks pregnant. My employer does not offer any maternity benefits at all. However it states in our handbook: We can file for Temporary Disability through Worker compensation. I call the Worker compensation hot line number for my state and they said yes in fact women on maternity leave who do not get benefits from there employer can file and get cash assistance through temporary disability.
My doctor already said that i can not return to work for at least 10 weeks (maybe even 12 – 14 weeks) due to the fact that i am having a c-section and i can not proform any task at home or work. Plus also he wants me to have time bond to with my baby. And i do too! This form needs to first be filed out from my doctor and then be filed out by my employer.
When i asked my employer for the form today (giving him 6 weeks to get his stuff in order with this because i need to bring this form to the hospital with me) He looked at me and grimaced and said he knows nothing about it and got the attitude that i’m not getting anything. He is the person who wrote the handbook. I have been with this compnay for 6 years. The past 2 have been horrible but i have stck with it because my husband 2 jobs combined just don’t make ends meet.
We also recieve every state benieft possible, medicaid, food stamps, heap, everything except for wellfair because we lease our car and you can not have a car if you recieve public assistance. So obviously we are stuggling.
What can i do if this man refuses to give me the form or even refuses to fill it out. This is the one things that will keep my family on track while i can not work?
I live in a very populaed and very expensive city. The poverty level for a family of 3 is 33,000.per year. Low income families are condidered from 33,001 – 45,000 per year. My and my husband combined income is 42,000.
In other states we could very well, but when our rent on a 2 bedroom apt is 1400. Its very hard for us in this state
