Life Insurance Claim Denied to Wrongfully Terminated Public Employee

Frustrated, overwhelmed and physically ailing from an assignment for which she was neither trained nor hired, a Teacher’s Aide and mother of 2 young children emphatically requested a transfer. The request was denied. During the summer, the Teacher’s Aide found out she had terminal cancer – and only a few months to live. Also during the summer, the school decided that her transfer request was an ultimatum amounting to her resignation. She never actually resigned, the school never told her she was terminated, and the school never offered her termination benefits. Shortly after her death, the family filed an employee life insurance claim, which was denied. The family was shocked that she had been terminated and allegedly had resigned. When the school refused to budge, the family called us. Our attorneys won complete claim reversal and her children now have a college fund.
