If my employer terminates my employment due to work restrictions imposed on my job duties by my treating W/C Doctor and I haven't yet been told that I've reached MMI do I begin to receive bi-monthly benifits? (there is a term for those benifits I think(?).
There exists a sipulation in my employment agreement and in my union contract that clearly states that if I can't perform my job as per the job description I can be terminated. I have no problem with that.
In the event that I am terminated and I DO receive bi-monthy benifits does that compensation continue past MMI and the Impairment Rating and until there is a settlement reached or am I dropped off at the time of the MMI and Rating? I've heard that going thru arbitration toward a "settlement" can take quite a long time.
