Currently on short-term disability, and protected under the FMLA act, however I am getting real close to reaching my 12 weeks of FMLA.
The orthopedic treating me has extended my short-term disability due to complications and possible surgery that has me out till March of 2014. By then I don't see my employer holding my job. I already see the situation unfolding as my employer called me to turn in my tools.
I would love to get back to work, unfortunately I cant due to my knee issues and the constant heavy lifting at work. The doctor treating me had originally requested "light duty" my employer responded with "we don't offer light duty since its not a work related incident" she then had no choice to put me on short-term disability...any help will be highly appreciated***And I am of course asking about unemployment benefits after I have been released from short-term disability not simultaneously... ***Thank you all for your time and answers, I work for a real shady employer, I'm not the first nor the last to go though this ordeal...they have done this before with my coworker (wrongful termination and discrimination) I have a consultation with his attorney that's currently working a case against my employer.
