Q: We have an employee who is on our medical/dental plan. He went on a 3-month sabbatical. However, upon his return, he resigned from his position. So, I have a number of questions.

1. What do we need to do about this situation in terms of benefits?

2. When should he be terminated from the benefits plan given he hasn’t worked for the last 3 months and wasn’t paying his portion of plan contributions?

3. Also, when should we issue the COBRA notice?
