HR Companies Suck

but you knew that. At my previous place of employment, we outsourced our HR to a company called Vertical Partner. They took care of payroll, health benefits, legal documents, etc. After loosing employment, I sent in the forms to get COBRA health insurance. Today, I received the letter back with a hand written note on the outside that said, "You have no COBRA rights, VP is closed. -Michael." Very professional.
