If an employee's Short Term Disability ends one-month after

If an employee's Short Term Disability ends one-month after the company's FMLA, does the employee have to accept a separation agreement (allowing lump sum compensation and continuation of medical benefits for 4 months starting on the employee's end-date of employment) before the expiration of the FMLA period? The company has extended a separation package but agreed to revisit it once the employee's ST Disability period expires (especially considering that the employee is still not able to return to work). Someone thought that the company would only offer the separation agreement if it fell within the FMLA timeframe and not the ST Disability time period. Is this true?

My question is about term disability, not sure what category

my question is about long term disability, not sure what category that falls into. About 10 years ago I went on long term disability thru my employer due to a rare eye disease that has left me visually impaired. I have just recently got offered a part time job that may turn into a full time job if it works out. the pay is significantly lower. It is about half my pre-disability hourly rate and if I only work say 10-15 hours a week its only about 20% of my previous weekly rate. I am not to sure if I will get kicked off of the disability plan. How do most of these plans work I cannot understand the jargon in the benefit plans. I don't even know if I am asking the question correctly. In other words: Will they continue to pay me benefits even if I get a part time job or will they terminate the monthly benefit outright. Thanks for any help.

I am 61 years old and have been a practicing Pharmacist in

I am 61 years old and have been a practicing Pharmacist in Wash State for 40 years. Currently I work for Walmart as a Staff Pharmacist-as of April 15, 2017 Walmart is requiring all Pharmacists to perform immunization injections to customers. Unfortunately, I have multiple sclerosis and a form of cerebral palsy thus I don't have the physical ability, due to my disability, to safely administer injections. Walmart has sent me a letter informing me my employment will be terminated effective 4/16/17 because I can't give injections even though I have a medical disability. I have done nothing wrong and can do all other aspects of the job expertly. This seems like discriminatory action and they have said there is no reasonable accommodation for my situation. Injections are asmall part of a pharmacists role thus I don't see how this is causing the company any real financial issues or harm. What should be my next steps? Thank you Lori

Employer offers term disability only. Brother is on FMLA and

Employer offers long term disability only. Brother is on FMLA and will be out on unpaid leave shortly. Cannot take advantage of the employers' long term disability plan because after 12 weeks they could fire him and the long term disability is only effective after 6 months. How can anyone be permanently disabled for 6 months and still have a job. Don't understand why they do not have short term disability
