Hello, This is Ticklemethu's sister in Law. I ran into a problem concerning my benefits at work. I started with this company in july. I was told that my benefits will start after 90 days. Months later I was told that my benefit enrollment date had passed & I miss it. So I cannot enroll in my benefit until the end of the year, which meant my benefit will not start until january 1st. Just recently on Dec. 27th, 06, I was admited to the ER for dislocating my right knee. HR is telling me that they cannot help me because I do not have coverage until the 1st of the year. My question is: What are my rights? It seems as if they are not doing their job. They simply just tell me that there is nothing they can do for me. Please help. I have an email ready to be sent out for the HR dept. but wanted to see if I was doing the right thing. -B.
