I was terminated with a severance recently. In the severance
I was terminated with a severance recently. In the severance agreement I signed there was no mention of any overpayment of salary by the employer to me. Now my employer wants to retrieve 3 months of salary they paid to me while I was on short-term disability. They state I did not have substantiate leave for that time. Before my termination I appealed the decision made by the insurance company assigned by the employer. This appeal is now pending decision by December 2016 or possibly January 2017.I am liable to pay back salary for 3 months to the employer that terminated me with severance a couple of months ago under these circumstances? Do I need to seek legal representation and have a lawyer handle the communication with my employer and insurance company solely? Please advise. Thank you. Does the state I live in matter?

My daughter was just notified by phone that she has been
My daughter was just notified by phone that she has been terminated because she has been out sick since August 1, 2016. She was in the ER twice then admitted to the hospital on August 5, 2016, had a severe pinched nerve, possible 2 bulging discs, numerous CT and MRI scans, released from hospital on August 10, 2016 with future appointments with numerous follow up Dr's, Orthopedic, Rheumatologist, and physical therapy 3 times a week, she has been taking numerous pain and anti-inflammatory medications which would impair her driving. Not to mention she cannot walk without a walker, she cannot put any pressure on left leg to walk, needs help to get up from sitting position, we were always in contact with her employer telling them hopefully she would be returning to work the following week. But she hasn't gotten any better. We are in the process of filling for short term disability but her doctor has not completed the paperwork. What are our options? We have all documentation for every day she has been absent from work. This nerve pain came on all of a sudden and she was a model employee prior to August 1st. Please help and your advice and guidance is greatly appreciated. LM

I have an employee that is out on short term disability. She has a letter stating that she is not released to return to work yet. She has an appointment with her physician on Monday. I just was told that she is on a cruise. She was originally scheduled off this week for a vacation before going out on short term disability. Can she do this?

I took 6 months short term disabilty leave. I could not
I took 6 months short term disabilty leave. I could not return to work because of my back. I ended up having back surgery. My leave ended the day after my surgery. I had rods put in my back and a disk replaced and verterbrates fused. The doctor told me I could return to work in 3 months with limitations. My company told me I had to be back to work in 8 weeks. If I don't return by then I will be terminated. My next doctors appointment won't be until the day after my return to work date. I will then start rehab. I have already lost my full time position with the company. Can they fire me at the eight week mark. I read personal leave is 12 weeks not 8.
