I am sorry to hear that sounds like you are in a difficult situation.

What is your specific legal question for me please?

Customer
Im in Montreal(Quebec).My colective insurance-Humania closed my permanent disability file and not pay anymore since June14.My company wait me to resign cause I started school and they said I will receive financial support.As I know if U resign all future financial supports are cut.What shall I do?(as I know if its normal,they must keep the job for me 24months).Tks.

Oh please don't worry that I don't know Montreal is in Quebec. I am in Canada!

Are you saying that your insurance company stopped paying you because you were able to return to school? Where does your company get the idea that you always see financial support?

But where did you hear that your employer cannot dismiss you for 24 months?

Customer
Insurance closed the file and sent me gradually to work but without my doctor signature,because they not pay a temporary disability.For permanent disability I understood by Law ur company must keep ur job for max 24 months.And also I thing insurance should pay anyway 24 months not just closed the file from one side(norme de travaille,Labir code,AMF Quebec).I read also if I resign I lose a lot of right for the future.

You should not resign. That is clear.

But, if you have returned to school and haven't returned to work your employer can take the position that you have a resigned or they can take the position that the contract has been frustrated and that you just aren't able to comply with its terms.

Your doctor doesn't have to sign off on anything with insurance company though. Your doctor is not their employee rather, you can use the medical reports from your doctor to fight their decision to cut you off.

So as you are dissatisfied with the decision of the insurance company you have to find out from them how you can appeal and then you should do just that.

It may be that you need a lawyer to step in and fight for you. What you can do to find a lawyer is one of the following things.

You can review the law society's suggestions on how to find a lawyer. Depending on where you live you may be able to consult with a lawyer for $25 for the first half hour:

https://www.barreau.qc.ca/en/find-lawyer/

Or you can check on a site called lexpert. This is a legal directory of leading lawyers and law firms throughout Canada and is well-respected by the legal community.

Here's the link to their website:

http://www.lexpert.ca/directory/find-lawyers-or-law-firms/

Does that help as a starting point?

Customer
we play now but this is the procedure.I made appeal second time and I contactet a lawyer.I wait the answer from her(sure they are very busy)to start something and meantime I inform myself(law graduate in Romania).Its a good reason for no return to work my school starting and also my believe I put my life in danger(I work in metal ansambling and I take Coumadin pills).Tks for the link.

Oh I understand fully. But you need to understand everyone around you doesn't want to pay you. So you have to fight because the insurance company want you gone and now the employer wants you gone.

Customer
I know.Thats why they not let me other choise than -to fight.(closing file mean premium wave stopeed too so need to pay from an empty pocket weekly the colective insurance fees..haha)And somebody gonna pay.So I will start the war soon just to find the right lawyer.Meantime I live my life,no resign but school for career change and probably Uber taxi for flexible schedule.

Debra, Expert

That all sounds like a great plan. You will have some money and school is vital for you.

You don't want to be placed in a situation where you are stuck with an unfair employer and a bad work situation simply because you did not go to law school in Canada. You are clearly more intelligent and more well educated than most and it must be unbearably frustrating to have an employer who has power over you and isn't intelligent or well educated.

I sincerely ***** ***** works out for you smoothly.
