Important Health Insurance Update
Health insurance coverage for current ICE employees is paid through November 30, 2014 only. Because the hearing on the preliminary injunction was rescheduled to December 16 and 17, 2014, the Receiver will be filing a motion for Court authorization to pay premiums to extend health insurance coverage for current ICE employees through December 31, 2014. If you are an ICE employee that wishes to formally resign from ICE and/or has found other employment, you must notify the Receiver immediately. The Receiver has been advised by the ICE health insurance plan administrator that if former ICE employees fail to notify the Receiver of their resignation or new employment to cancel existing coverage, they may be subject to personal liability for claims made to the ICE health insurance plan. ICE employees who resign are eligible to extend health insurance coverage through COBRA at their own expense.
The Court, with the consent of all parties, has re-scheduled the hearing on the FTC’s motion for preliminary injunction from November 24, 2014 to December 16 and 17, 2014. The purpose of the hearing is to determine whether the temporary restraining order should be dissolved or converted to a preliminary injunction. After the Court rules on the FTC’s motion for preliminary injunction, the Receiver will be in a position to provide additional information about the case, the status of ATS’s business and services, and the status of employee paychecks.
