And yes, I am an employment law attorney.
what is your question?
What were the terms of your STD? Was it a 60 day policy?
yes but what were the TERMS of your policy? some policies do not pay out for that long...
not the dates you took it.
example, I was put on bedrest when I had twins and I took STD for for 6 months, but they only paid for it for 3 months.
it totally depends on the terms of your policy b/c the insurance backers of the policy expect that you will also be able to use a combination of unpaid leave, sick time, and vacation time.
so before you make a big deal out of whether or not you should sign away your right to those wages, you want to make sure you are even entitled to them.
and also, is STD Policy through your company directly or a third party provider?
If you waive claims against your company I do not see how that would prevent you from continuing your claim against CIGNA.
phew, glad we got that firgured out.
