Employers have very little leeway to fire you without adequate compensation. There are many legal instruments that discourage them from doing so for trivial reasons or for false and unproven accusations. Our laws inflict severe penalties on employers who pursue such allegations and then miss the mark. Ontario employees can take comfort that the law is firmly on your side in this matter.

The insurance industry does not publish comprehensive statistics on the number of disability claims they deny. However, we believe the numbers are shockingly high. A majority of disability cases we manage are for claims denied illegitimately. Almost always, these denials have nothing to do with the merits of the claim but everything to do with cost-savings for the insurance company.

As an ill or disabled employee, you may have tried to access your employment disability benefits. If so, you already know they are not the “peace of mind” contracts you believed them to be. Almost all short term disability benefits are denied by private insurers. Bram Lecker makes the argument for how simple it would be for the Federal Government to implement a National STD Insurance Plan for all Canadians, replacing the current circus playing out through private employment run plans.

Anatomy of Short Term Disability Claims. A majority of short term disability claims get denied. The insurance company will likely determine your condition to be ineligible or not serious enough. It does not matter whether this is completely contrary to a diagnosis by trained medical professionals. What is going on here?

Employee mental health is an issue all workplaces should get a grasp on. It is the leading cause for employee absenteeism and reduced productivity. The best way to manage this is to prevent it from setting in, in the first place.
