Former Honda Employee Granted Long-Term Disability Benefits
A forty-seven-year-old man, who worked for Honda for over twenty years, was recently granted long-term disability benefits after he was diagnosed with a severe case of chronic fatigue syndrome.
The man and his co-workers began noticing differences in his behavior after he suffered a bout with the flu. He became lethargic and unable to perform small tasks without feeling incredibly weak. After seeing several doctors, it was concluded that he had chronic fatigue syndrome, a disorder that cannot be tested, but only observed.
The man’s employer at Honda initially told him that he could not receive long-term disability benefits because he was not able to prove that he had the disorder. However, a district court in Connecticut ruled that it was imperative that he receive disability benefits because several doctors diagnosed him with a severe disorder that left him incapable of working.
