This is quite a shot in the dark since this is not your direct email. I am reaching out to pitch my story to you as an ex-employee. To keep it short and sweet I was fired the week of the first year anniversary of my sons passing. I had found out about his passing while on the job after returning to work from fmla. On Christmas eve at that. I have an older son who is now 10, that I had to fight through each day for. I was offered to "quit" so that I could return later on in life, however, I truly wanted to fight through it and keep my job. I loved working for Spectrum Mobile in Schenectady NY. It is the one job that I thought I would be at for the rest of my working life. Unfortunately because of diagnosed PTSD I was unable to get out of bed a lot of days, rush home because of my family issues, or simply just could not contain my emotions. Sedgwick dropped the ball on me a few times. The first year of dealing with my loss was the worst year of my entire life, my Connor was almost 5 months old then, he would be 2 now. I have been trying to regain my old position so that I can work from home and do what I love again. I was let go January 6th 2020.

I have a son remote learning and a son who is 5 days away from being 8 months old. During this pandemic, Charter did just what I would have needed to keep my job in the first place, they went remote. I always mentioned it during meetings, to my peers and sups. I had hoped for a day it would be available so that I would never miss work or have to deal it Sedgewick again. Unfortunately for me, I never was able to see that day come. I have spoken to a few people on how to go about this, and this made the most sense to me. Corporate does not wish to hire me back, but I have high hopes that you may re consider my plea. I hope this found you well, be well, and have a wonderful day.
