I have been out from work since Oct 7,2011.
If things go well I am hoping to be able to work no later than March 2012.
I was under the impression, that because I am on disability (not workman's comp), and due to no fault of mine, I will not be able to come back to the position that I left. I thought that the I would be able to consider my "lay off" as of the time in which I discontinued working from disability and not be jeopardized for the time that was essential to take off for my illness. If that would be the case then how long I am out for my disability is not relevant. I just want to bring this up and make sure that if the clock is ticking then I will be in very bad shape if I do not get released from disability soon.
At this time I can not be sure what my time frame is so I am vey concerned.
Thank you. I think that you misunderstood what I was trying to say but you did clarify some of the issues I had. I was "injured" and went out on disability, assuming that when I was well that I would have a job to come back to. I believe that the employer is obligated to keep a position open for no at least 6 months. I have just heard from my employer that I will not be able to come back to work due to downsizing.
I just want to make sure that when I file for unemployment that I will not have a problem filing.
