Recent Short Term Disability questions

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?

Short term disability appeal claim denied. My disability

Short term disability appeal claim denied. My disability started on 6/17/2016 and I went on disability because my boss blew up at me for the third time and the stress was just too much. I come from an abusive childhood as well as an abusive marriage and just broke down from the stress. I did go to a doctor because I had uncontrollable diarrhea that seemed to start whenever it wanted to and I had no control. The doctor I first saw who was my family doctor he saw me twice then he decided to transfer and I has to wait at least a couple of weeks to see his replacement. My job is a Customer Service Rep in an insurance agency and according to The Hartford they don't see any reason why I couldn't do my job...I tried to explain about the diarrhea but they said that wasn't good enough????

I was out on workers compensation with my current job due to

I was out on workers compensation with my current job due to an injury. I decided at that time to get another certification to get a different job. I received that certification and started applying to new jobs. One of the prospective jobs that I applied to told me that they would not interview due to my work restriction I had from a doctor. I spoke to my doctor and was released from restriction to go back to work. I went through the interview process and just found out that this prospective employer isn't going to hire me. They said the reason was due to my past injury. Do I have a case?

My employer is requiring me to take a fitness performance

My employer is requiring me to take a fitness performance assessment. If I cannot due to cost, can I still receive short term disability? A nurse a few weeks ago, filled out medical restriction forms but now an expensive assessment test is required. I am so concerned about this, right now I am on unpaid leave because of the nurse's medical restrictions until I have a fitness assessment done. I am currently considered an employee and am starting to receive short term disability insurance.
