My wife was hurt while working at LabCorp as an employee. After paying for the immediate medical bills, but refusing to pay the long term disability payments, they terminated her for being disabled and unable to perform her job there.
The settlement for the Worker's Compensation claim includes a dismissal with prejudice to preclude any further legal action, a statement that my wife "voluntarily resigns from and agrees not to seek reemployment" with LabCorp, and a statement prohibiting discussion of the case or settlement.
That's why this is being posted prior to enforcement. This is LabCorp's way of "preventing" bad publicity.
By the way, the settlement is about 1/4 of a year's wages, and she has a number of years to go before retirement. How's that for caring for your employees?
