Am I eligible for insurance benefits if my employer terminated me before I could submit the claim to the insurance company?
Our courts have in certain situations found employers liable for providing disability benefits to employees terminated before or while they experienced a disability. An employee who is dismissed as a result of being unable to work due to a disability may also be able to make a Human Rights complaint against the company.
