Final premium deduction
I have a employee who is leaving us this week. Today Hr called and said the health insurance lasts through the end of the month so the remaining premiums are going to be taken out of her check. Our company was recently bought out and the new owners do not pay any portion of the family plan. What they did was give those with the family plan only a raise to cover the $345.00 bi weekly deductions. The problem is she is not being given anything to cover the deductions they will now be making- the extra $345. for the last half or march. We poored over all the information provided to us about the plan and found no mention of the employee being responsible for any remaining premium after thier employment has ended ( the plan does state that it is valid till the end of the month). I have a HYSTERICAL employee who is basicly being left with no money on her final paycheck and the question how can they do this without ever informing me of this policy. HR said they have the right to not disclose this information but could this posibly be covered under ERISA? Please help!
