Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.

Unfortunately, no, your employer is not required to pay9 the difference between your disability payments and your full salary. The only exception would be if you had unused sick time, which could be applied to the difference.

If I can clarify anything at all for you, please do not hesitate to ask. It is my pleasure to assist you further if necessary....
