Many employees enjoy the benefit of permanent health insurance cover under their contracts of employment. This is insurance cover which comes into effect when an employee becomes sick long-term, with the benefit payable after a set period of time.
It's not uncommon to experience problems when claiming on a permanent health insurance policy. Issues can arise with your employer when there is a dispute as to whether the cover is payable or not. This can be complicated when the terms offered by the insurer differ from those expressed in the employee's contract or employee handbook.
The relationship between dismissal and benefits payable under permanent health insurance is also an area ripe for disputes. For example, in cases where an employee on long term sick leave is receiving benefits under a permanent health insurance policy, these payments may terminate on the employee's dismissal.
Disability Discrimination Law in particular, where it concerns mental health issues like chronic fatigue and depression, can also complicate the terms under which permanent health insurance payments are paid. Slater and Gordon's expert team Work Discrimination Lawyers are leaders in their field.
