If an employee has to take off work for medical reasons and

If an employee has to take off work for medical reasons and claim short-term disability benefits (short-term disability is provided by the company), can the employer use that employee's FMLA leave, as well, to cover time off? I had to take short-term disability leave due to medical issues that I have (I also have a son with medical issues that I provide primary care for); I was paid for this leave. Now the company is saying that I have no more FMLA leave to take because they used it to cover my absences. Can a company use short-term disability AND FMLA toward my absences?

Just to give you and a small overview. That man sexual assaulted me in my hotel room and I call my manager and the police to file a police report and they arrested him, and called me the next evening stating he had made bail in Springfiled. The comapny sent me back up to Sorinfgfield to finish my second week and bring back my police report for the investigation. When I came back last friday, I accidently dropped it on the finance guy desk while gving him my expense report, and I realized it when I couldnt find it. So when I came in on Monday, I asked the finance guy where is it, he said he sat it on Jason Parson desk Friday. So I went to jasn and I said the finacne guy said he sat something on your desk it was very confiedntial and t belonged to me can I have it. Jason replied aw its at home I took it home. He said surely you didnt want me t leave it and everyone read it did you. I said I need to turn it in ,he said its not big deal I will bring it tomorrow. So at that point I ran to my manager and she had to take me to human resources, because I was very emotional upset, because people from all didffrent departments keep coming to me asking me where is marcus I heard he got fires because of an incident that happen in the hotel room, I said i dont know, and I went to HR again and told them, now my business is being spread all over the orkplace. I am being victimized all over, and you all did not protect me you said it would stay confidential, and it has not, my work place is hostiale, I am constantly harrass, and all you all keep asking me to take a leave of absence, and its not right. JAson had no right to take my personal information home, and let alone notify you all or me that he even had it, if i had not actively serach for it, he wouldn't have never told me, and the HR director said that he will be dealt with an they will get my police report back monday, well i didnt get it back until I asked again on tusday and they stated that jason suppose to have gaveit to me at the beginning of the shift, and now it 3pm and it close to the end of my shift. Even today I am constantly harrass and very emotional, and all my company keep telling me that i am their number on e priorty however this harrass, and hostile eviroment is stressing me out. I been a rape victim since te age of nine, and my therapist that i have not seen since the last incident that happen with the comapny had to put me back on anxiety medicine to take 4 times a day.

This is my first time on this site. I am looking for answers

This is my first time on this site. I am looking for answers to what is legally allowed by employers for intermittent leave of absence. Can they include your days off as part of the days/duration per month of the leave? Wouldn't it just be the days that I would normally work?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: IowaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I have only filled out paperwork that my doctor signed for intermittent leave of absence. I have issues with my back and have osteoarthritis in my knees, ankles, arms, hips, as well as in the lower vertebrae of my back.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Not that I can think of. Only, I was previously on leave for 9 months with a herniated disc and had applied for Social Security, and was only 3 months away from being approved. The employer's disability insurance company and my neurosurgeon sent me back to work, even though I continue to have alot of problems.

Can an employee who was recently out sick for a week with a

Can an employee who was recently out sick for a week with a note from the doctor be called in and told that she cannot have any more time off for the rest of the year. She has 40 hours of vacation and was told that she cannot take it. She moved into a new position approximately 3 months ago and she was also told for the first time that it looks like she can't handle this position and she is now on 60 days probation. She has worked for this company for almost 6 years and has always been given outstanding evaluations. The man she now works for is rude, yells for her to come into his office all day long and disagree with all the training she has received to do this job. When she tries to talk with him he will not allow her to do so. Is any or all of this legal?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: FloridaJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: Full timeJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No

My boss has been very crude towards me and is relentless

My boss has been very crude towards me and is relentless with questions to provoke me. He told me to stop the BS for a question he personally asked me with multiple others cc'd on the email. I was answering him honestly and didn't think anything I said was derogatory. He has been like this from the beginning however it is getting worse, like asking me to add e.g. 32 + 68 when it's clearly obvious I am more than capable of doing that. I am very cordial, kind and only doing my job. I am the research manager at our office. Can I do anything as I feel like he is harassing me? or do I start looking for another job which is a tremendous inconvenience. I was hired by another Doctor to work on his clinical trials and this other physician who is the president of the company, the physician who hired me is the Research Director, the other physician decided that I could take on his work as well even though I explained I couldn't do all of the work on my own and we would need to hire a research assistant. He has gotten to the point where he harasses me with emails everyday.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: FloridaJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: Full timeJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: There's so much, that is it for now.
