Re: Layed Off
I know it doesn't help but I know what you're going through, I got sacked 4 weeks ago and am going through the same thing. can you Cobra your insurance that is what I had to do, so I wouldn't lose my coverage. I would definitely apply for unemployement asap and get that ball rolling. In this economy I'm not sure your going to have much luck fighting a layoff due to economic reasons, it doesn't matter that you were currently on unpaid med leave. At most they would be made to keep you on until you came back to work and then they'd just lay you off then. If he was laying you off because of medical reasons that would be a whole different story, but he knows how to work the system it seems. The other thing to do is to go to your social services web site for your county and figure out what benefits you can apply for , food stamps, child assistance, medicaid, section 8 benefits, mental health benefits...theres a lot of different things.
Good luck with all this....
