OK - so that confirms she was hired as a contractor. One of the reasons for the higher pay for contractors vs. employees is because contractors aren't covered by the corporate benefits plan. If they want benefits like short term and long term disability to ensure income protection - this is something they must purchase privately on their own. If she was an employee, she would also probably get at least partial coverage for the injections and calcium that were prescribed to her. But again, as a contractor, it was up to her to purchase this insurance on her own. Tough situation - but at least she knows now that she isn't entitled to any support from her workplace.Thanks guys. HR says she isn't eligible;e for any benefits
I have informed her. Vitamin D Injections and Calcium were prescribed to her. Multi-vitamins and protein capsules, she is having on her own!
