MAPIE – West Chicago Illinois — Employment Issue

MAPAIThe following post (Below) was by one of my friends on Facebook and I have known her bother for more than 40 years.

My brother was recently diagnosed with cancer. The day before his treatment started he had a massive stoke, which left him with left-sided paralysis and has delayed his cancer treatment. His employer, Mapei in West Chicago, just sent him a letter denying his short-term disability, terminating his employment, and ending his insurance. If anybody can recommend legal aid or a lawyer that does pro bono work, please let me know. We want to know if this is legal.

I suggested filing a complaint with the EEOC (Federal) or any Illinois Department that deals with Employment issues.

If you are a lawyer that specializes in ILL Employment issues please leave a comment with your name and phone number where you can be reached.  I will pass all comments on to the folks needing the assistance.  If anyone out there in cyberland wants to suggest a specific possible solution, please leave a comment.

We have nothing to add except that this is total BS on MAPEI’s part and we need to do the right thing.  Corporate MAPEI is in Milan Italy and we are reaching out to them also.
