My employer took away my health benefits and all other benefits because I did not make my full-time hours two weeks in a row due to illness.

More details to this question:
I did not make my full-time hours two weeks in a row. My manager then told me I would have to pay for my own benefits package and I informed her I could not afford that because I had no PTO and would not be getting paid for a full paycheck anyways. Once determined I cannot afford it, she marked me as a temporary employee and backdated that date to June 30, 2017 and took away all my benefits. We had our discussion on July 12. She made me feel as though I was in between a rock and a hard place.

Sorry, but she is within her right to do that. Contact the Department of Labor if you want to file a complaint.

Insurance
Insurance enables people and companies to reduce the risk of suffering a catastrophic financial loss. Insurance attorneys offer a variety of services to both individuals and small businesses. For example, paying a small health insurance premium protects you in the event you are in an accident or diagnosed with a health condition that requires expensive treatment. Individual consumers may commonly purchase health insurance, automobile insurance, homeowner's insurance and/or renter's insurance. Businesses need a variety of policies to protect both their property and the company in the event of a lawsuit. Your insurance lawyer can review your existing policies and advise you on additional policies or coverage that may be necessary to protect you or your company from potential risks. Insurance law firms can also help you challenge insurance claims that have been denied in "bad faith," or in violation of the terms and conditions of the policy. And insurance lawyers can represent you if you are sued for something that is covered by an existing insurance policy.
