Filing tips to prevent long- and short-term disability disputes

A significant injury or illness can take you away from work for a long time or a short time. If you have disability insurance, you probably feel secure about your financial situation in the event of time away from your job. In truth, most employees in Ohio never expect that an insurance dispute could arise to make their situation even worse. However, long- and short-term disability disputes do occur.

When are employers legally required to pay severance?

Like most members of the Ohio workforce, you probably believe that severance payments are voluntary on the part of employers. This is certainly the case in most employment situations. However, there are times when the law requires employers to compensate workers upon the termination of their employment. When employers fail to do it may be possible to initiate a formal severance dispute, which can help you make ends meet until you find a new job.

Fighting for the short-term disability benefits you need

When you are unable to work due to a disabling medical condition, it can be disheartening. You may feel overwhelmed by the fact that you cannot earn a living to support yourself and your Ohio family. You may have short-term disability insurance through your employer or a personal insurance policy, but what happens if you have trouble getting the support you need?
