Thread regarding Staples Inc. layoffs

Leave of Absence

I am not in the upper ranks of Staples. I am one of the Associates in a busy PMS store; the only profitable part in all of Staples' retail.

I requested a LOA for 30 days due to Covid 19 implications. I was told that Cigna is managing all leaves of absence which will then be forwarded back to Staples (HR I assume). Cigna wants permission to disclose all my medical records. I have no relationship in any way with Cigna and I feel this is a gross invasion of privacy especially for a 30 day LOA. But without this disclosure, I may not get the LOA.

Has anyone had any experience with this? I do appreciate any feedback and I wish all people on this forum the best of luck with any issues they may be experiencing, Thank you.

Cigna manages leaves as third party to keep your information confidential. It is easier for you. If not you take forms to doctor
