I live in California, and I was terminated. As expected I received my Cobra paperwork and it stated I was eligible. Approximately four days later before I submitted any paperwork I received a letter, form a third party administration, stating I was not eligible due to Gross Misconduct. I called the administrator and they told me some one removed my qualifying event, deleted, and placed a new event in stating gross misconduct. I was certainly not terminated for gross misconduct, and I’m attempting to find someone to appeal to. The administrator informed me there is no appeals process available to me within the administrator’s policy, but to call the National Labor board.*** Apr,08 '13*** Thank you all for the quick reply’s. I took your advice and got an attorney, one call and a one meeting later everything was taken care of. No less than four days, and with a very favorable outcome. I can't go further into detail, but I greatly appreciate the assistance.
