I interviewed and was hired by a company. Between my leaving my old job and entering my new one the job responsibilities changed. I was given more responsibilities to the point where I couldn't deal with the stress. I was asked by my manager if I planned on seeking employment outside of the company, I said I had to. She told me that wouldn't do and asked for my letter of resignation. I complied with her request because I was worried about my psychological health (I have had serious problems in the past) my psychotherapist advised me to watch my stress. The job was misrepresented and I left a good job making more money.
The responsibilities were dispersed after my resignation because it was too much work for anyone to handle.I explained the job separaption details with Massachusetts Unemployment and they allowed me unemployment benefits. I am currently receiving the extended benefits but can not afford the COBRA health insurance. The current stimulus package has a subsidy to help pay for COBRA that would make it affordable, but the HR rep from the job I left says I can not qualify because I resigned. I was willing to just move on with my life and let things go. I am having difficulty with this because it just feels like I have to fight to get any help at all and it's all because of the way I was treated by my former employer. How would a situation like this play in the legal system? I can't afford health insurance, how could I afford an attorney? Thank You for listening, and thank you Attorney Sarno
