Can an employer change insurance companies in the middle of the year and give the employees less than 2 weeks notice?
Employers usually change their insurance on their renewal date which is anytime of the year. Yours may just have happened to be in the middle of the year. They do not have to give you notice, but even less than two weeks, that's still plenty of time for them to give you information regarding the new plan, what it covers, what your contribution, if any, is going to be. They shouldn't cancel your prior coverage until they get approval from the new company.

It isn't even necessary for an employee, but it is consideredpolite. As for an employer, they are protected because of theirbusiness. If you work an extra 2 weeks (having just… received a 2weeks notice), you could be pissed off enough to not do a good jobwhich would hurt revenue for the company. Some disgruntledemployees cause damage on the way out if they are given notice If an employee is being let go "for cause", meaning that he/she didsomething wrong, the employer is wise to not allow the employee toremain and cause more problems. If the company is just havingproblems and cutting back, often the employer will not want to takea chance that the employee might sabotage the company in some way.Truth be told, a two weeks notice isn't really necessary for anemployee to an employer either. In the US nearly all states have"employment at will" laws which basically state that either theemployer or the employee may quit / terminate services for prettymuch any rhyme or reason ( unless you and the employer have a written contractof employment that stipulates a clearly defined termination ofemployment process). Most employers require their employees to givewritten consent to the terms of working in an "at will" workplaceas a strict condition of employment (which almost makes a two weeksnotice by either party seem rather silly). Only eight states do not have public policy as an exception to atwill employment (ignores if an employer sanctioned terminationwould have violated state / federal law): Alabama, District ofColumbia, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Maine, Nebraska, New York,and Rhode Island. 13 States do not recognize "implied contract exceptions" to at willemployment (typically a verbal contract). It is very difficult toprove there was an implied contract, as the burden of proof solelyis on the employee. The states do not recognize implied contractexceptions are: Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Louisiana,Massachusetts, Missouri, Montana, North Carolina, Pennsylvania,Rhode Island, Texas, and Virginia. 11 States recognize implied in law contracts (good faith and fairdealing) as an exception to at will employment. Basically, theemployer must have "just cause" to immediately terminate employment(if the company isn't experiencing a financial hardship). Thosestates are: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, California, Delaware, Idaho,Massachusetts, Montana, Nevada, Utah, and Wyoming.

I just want to give more information on my issue. We sign the lease at the end of December of 2008. The starting day on lease is March 1st. It's a coop apartment. On February …16 of 2009 I received a call from the wife of the owner and she told me he is in the hospital and she doesn't know whether or not apartment will be available on March 1st. They are in the middle of buying a house and she is not sure what will happen right now. I understand, they are dealing with major crisis, so I offered to talk to my current landlord to see if he'll let me stay in my apartment for a few more months. This way they can take their time and let me know how the things are progressing. She became very pushy and said I don't want to deal with it right now, just take your money (they already cashed 2 out checks security deposit and rent) and that was that.. A few things bother me after that conversation. Why didn't she wants to wait a few months to see what will happen. Second she said the closing will be this friday, but when I talked to her husband a week earlier he said the closing will be on Friday February 13th. She is probably telling the truth, but I can help but think there could me more the story. So at this point I am trying to find an apartment.. I am planning to ask her to send me a formal letter that they are breaking the lease with me. This way I'll be covered when I moved to another place and they can't say I broke their lease. If it's going to be very expensive for me to find an apartment on short notice, I might ask for some compensation.. What are my legal options at this point? It doesn't mean I'll go through with them just want to know. If what she said is true, than I try to work something out (even thought she is not willing to talk about it). If there is another reason, such as finding another person to pay them more rent, than I will take them to court.. What shall I do if she refuses to send me a termination of lease letter?. Thank you for all your help.
How does a company move to providing employer-based health insurance if they are currently just giving employees checks to buy their own health insurance?
Easy. Call a local broker or benefits company. It doesn't cost you anything and they can match you up with the best plan for you. If you want to do it yourself, call the carr…iers for a quote. You'll need to provide them with an employee census. Keep in mind you'll need to meet certain participation requirements, usually around 70% of eligible employees will need to sign up for the coverage. The percentage varies by carrier and plan. In California you can visit http://tfp8.com/health-insurance.htm for more information.
You see, I have a fine education in business from Dilbert. From what I've seen, as long as you are a main character, you won't get laid off. However, if you are lame, and do n…ot have a quirky personality, than you will probably get fired within a day. Hope this helps.
If you work those two weeks,yes. The notice is that you intend to leave not work for free.
If An employee of a dentist has insurance and the employer files insurance and gives the employee all the money back from the insurance company Is this legal?
No. This would be not only be insurance fraud but would alsoendanger the license of the dentist involved. Plus if the insurancecompany ever found out about such a thing, the D…ental Practicewould have to close down, because no insurance company wouldcontract with someone like that, ever again. If the State LicensingDivision didn't revoke the Dentist's license, the insurancecarriers no longer processing claims from this business would drivethem out of business. The Dentist would have to start working atthe 7-11 Store. Crooks are not Professionals.
Unless you have a contract with your employer that states otherwise, you do not have to give two weeks' notice. However, there are several reasons why you might want to: …. It's good form. Giving two weeks' notice demonstrates your professional courtesy and moral character. . It may help you receive accrued paid time off. Unless your state is required to pay you accrued paid time off, your employer may decide whether you will receive paid time off at separation. In this circumstance, most employers will only pay accrued PTO to employees who give appropriate formal notice. . It may positively affect your "rehire status." When future employers call a previous employer for a reference when you apply for a job, most employers will only share your "rehire status," that is, whether the company would hire you again. Obviously, being "not rehire-able" doesn't look good for you. Failing to give a formal notice gives your employer good reason to make you "not rehire-able." . You won't burn bridges. Beyond employer references for future jobs, you may find yourself wishing to return to the company or working with individuals from the company, and leaving suddenly without formal notice isn't going to help your cause.
Legally, in most situations, an employer cannot "just cancel" any employee's health insurance without notice. A federal law known as ERISA requires 60 days' notice of "materia…l reductions." Courts disagree over whether cancellation is a "material reduction" but all at least agree that concurrent notice (it's still notice to say 'I am canceling your health benefits as of today.') must be given to comply with fiduciary provisions. You should consult an attorney or your local labor board.
That would depend on the laws of your country, state, etc. Better check the laws for your specific country - but for ethical reasons, I would suggest you give them some time t…o find a replacement, in any case.. \n
