    Default Employer NOT making Insurance payments for Employees

    A friend of our goes to the hospital and is informed his Humano Insurance has been suspended because his employer hasn't paid the Insurance bill. The employer when questioned said he'll deal with it when he can.
    As the employer is legally bound to make the payments, what are the legal consequences should he continue not to pay the insurance on time - particularly if an employee has a serious expensive accident?

    Regards...

    "Lawyer up!!!

    You need to document this. Get a report from the clínica that says that the insurance is no good and take it to a lawyer and go to court, forthwith. You have one hellava case!!! And the money will flow!! Lots of it. Judges hate these people.

    Not An Uncommon Occurance!
    My best friend's brother-in-law was admitted to a SD hospital with "Dengue Fever".Five days ,and 50,000 pesos later he found out his employer was behind on the health insurance payments,NO INSURANCE!
    My friend paid,the employer paid him back,to AVOID the law suit.Which may cost you more to "fight" than you have to gain.

    Totally right, CCCCCCCCCC

    The new rules are stinging people left and right.

    You need the seguro, need to watch how many hours they work and include overtime.... lots of new and IMPORTANT things to comply with.

    Send me over one of yours from that 'Full House' you have.......... I can reduce your overhead

    you need to go to secretaria de trabajo to make a claim. thei believe they have people there who will work those type of cases. the law in DR always favours the employee.

    Been there - done that.

    Agree with you.

    Also, if you have an employee who is not 'measuring up', you can go to the secretaria and file a 'falta' agianst that employee.
    After 3 faltas........ fired w/ no recourse to you......no liquidation, nada.

    Worth knowing

    I could have done that, had I known.... saved 110,000 pesos for myself

    This is the DR.I can get any "Paperwork" you want!
    "References", from anyone,about anything!
    I once assisted a couple in the adoption of a Dominican baby girl.Everything was proceeding weel,until the "Law" regarding adoptions changed.The new law did not allow for adoption of children who had both parents living.The couple was devistated.I told them not to worry,I would have the father "Killed!"
    "Oh No!" they said.I got them a "Legalized Death Certificate" for the father.
    Adoption completed with no problems.
