Denied benefits
Permalink   


I've worked for Kroger for many years and enrolled from benefits many times. However, last year I went through enrollment thinking everything was okay and that I had benefits. While at the hospital with my wife at the end of February they came to me and told me they needed another form of payment. When I went to work that evening and checked my benefits it said waived. I called someone in HR and they told me that I had clicked on your 2022 instead of 2023. I sent in an appeal which was denied another appeal which was tonight and the reasoning was that I missed open enrollment. So here we are again at open enrollment time and I went and logged in the same as always and there is no way to click the wrong year. I feel I was cheated out of my benefits to save the money to pay the shareholders when they do the Albertsons merger. When speaking with the appeals committees and that help desk they told me that instead of meeting once a month they had to meet once a week due to the spike in appeals. That seems awful. Funny to me that they would have a spiking appeals unless they were doing something that wasn't okay. Anyone else get cheated out of their benefits?

Another class action about to happen? A thing like this should also be publicised so people get a hint of what they are dealing with. Customers walk in the door all the time without a clue.

I too can pretend to reply to myself about a hypothetical problem.

The difference is that I work here.

You don't.

And of that, I am envious.

 No, you can only collect unemployment if you were unjustly fired and you are actively seeking employment elsewhere.  Of course that second part was amended during covid.  Here are just a few just causes an employer can fire you for and not have to pay unemployment: stealing of either material goods or time, damaging either company or employee property, threats of violence or the act of actually commiting violence against another employee, customer, or anyone else while on the clock or engaged in any business involving the company, fighting, missing too many days without a good excuse, not showing up on time and/or leaving early, poor work performance.  Of course if a company is union, you pretty much don't have to worry about that last one, or even the one before it.

Kroger HR (Linda Gurrat) also denied me my unemployment, lied to a Washington State judge and committed perjury.

You might want to contact the union regarding this. The form might not be filled out correctly or something is preventing it. So long as you have 1 year working and apply during open enrollment (3 times a yr) you should qualify. You need to work a minimum of 60 hrs a mo (single) 80 hrs a mo (family) to get insurance. No one should be denied insurance. I highly suggest going to the union. Your hr reps is giving you a bs answer.
