I am nervous about taking my short term disability at my job! I am currently on FMLA, which is holding my position for me at my job. I am not getting paid on FMLA. I need to pay my bills BUT i dont want to possibly get denied short term disability and in turn lose my job for trying to collect short term disabilty. I have been basically talked down by H.R. to do what I need to do to get better. BUT she hasn't tried to get me any other info on short term disability. Im not sure if she is not saying anything about it for the company's sake or if she is trying to silently hint at me that it would not benefit me at all to go on Short term disabilty. This isn't the economy where we used to pick and choose a job like back in the nineties. I dont know what to do. If I could have someone local helpme. I am in kissimmee, FL. I appreciate all answers from all attorneys but I do need some guidance from someone who is licensed here in florida. Again, I appreciate ALL remarks regarding my question. Thank you in advance.
