The key for health benefits is that the employer must offer you COBRA whereby you pay for the health insurance after the termination of your employment. The question as to why you were laid off is important. Was the lay off based upon whether the doctor opined that you could return to work and do your job without any accomodations. The best example is a fireman. The fireman must be able to carry 165 pounds up a 20 foot ladder. if the fireman cannot do this task, then the position can be filled with someone who can. Ed Dimon
