CIGNA Corporation Complaint - How Employees Are Treated
VISALIA, CALIFORNIA -- I just wanted to vent about the way employees are treated in this company. After I was approved and even received correspondence from the company for short term disability due to my pregnancy. The Dr. wanted to take me out early due to severe stress and the fact that my manager would threaten to write me up if I used the bathroom more than twice a day. After I came back from maternity leave I received an email letting me know that my maternity leave was now denied and I owe them over $2000 and it will be taken out of my paycheck. I called and let them know I will be seeking legal advice because that isn't right. About a couple months later my newborn son was sick. So sick I could not take him to daycare. I remembered I saw that I had sick time leftover so I decided to take it. The next day I returned I worked half a day and my manager called me into a room and said it was Cignas new policy to terminate any employee who takes any unplanned time in January. I never signed anything or was even verbally warned about this ahead of time. I did notice in the same month a supervisors son had taken unplanned time but was never terminated.
However being terminated was the best thing that could happen seeing as how our health benefits were horrible and we have not gotten a raise in almost two years.
