Would anyone have any past experience with how to approach my employer to obtain a buyout.
I work for a major oil and gas company and was on STD for 6 months followed by 1 year of STD through Sun Life which is about to end. The information that I have from Sun Life is that they will now start trying to find me a new position that is suitable with my qualifications.
My Doctor is in full support of my leave from work because of the enormous stress that the company has placed on the position and role that I have been involved in. Basically he is stating to the Insurance Company that I shouldn’t work anymore and that I should “Retire”, My understanding of his “Retire” wording is that I should be done with my employer and the LTD.
Who is ultimately responsible to pay me out, the insurance company or my employer and can they be forced into ending my employment and paying me out. I physically and mentally can not continue in my existing role due to burnout. I know that I will need legal advice but for now I am looking for some past experiences from users of this site.
