Question: A number of years ago, we had a layoff from my long time employer; only one of the senior staff remained. That person has an autistic child. Recently, I have been told that he could not be terminated because he had an uninsurable dependent. Is that true?
Answer: From my expertise in health insurance, I would say no. I have never seen a situation where an employee could not be terminated because of their health or a dependents health.
Having said that, you should ask an employment lawyer.
