Is the employer the DI company (self insured) or is there a DI company? Ultimately you would need to ask the claims department.

Can I be fired while being on short term disability. I was even urged by my employer to go ahead and take the time to get well.

No. Having a baby is not considered a disability. The other issue is that if someone is collecting unemployment, that typically means that they no longer have benefits from their previous employer. In other words, most people who are not employed full time do not have short-term disability insurance.

Legally, no, an employer should not lay off anyone after disability. However, it does happen. It particularly happens if the employee can no longer do his or her job correctly because of his or her disability.

You have to check into Social Security disability, if you don't have your own disability insurance (individual policy, or through your employer); It is recommended that you get your own Disability Insurance policy if your employer does not offer such benefits. Yes, there are disability insurance policies available in Virginia.

An employer can discontinue employment for multiple reasons, including your inability to work. If your short-term disability was through your employer, and you didn't have a long-term disability insurance policy, your employer is not obligated to continue paying your salary or sick-pay benefits beyond your short-term disability policy.

Are you currently disabled? If so, check with your employer and / or state's social security disability benefits. If not currently disabled, you can get individual long-term disability protection from a handful of disability insurance companies, or through your employer.

Yes, employer paid disability insurance plans are normally paid with pre-tax money, therefore the benefits will be taxed.

Yes, and it's recommended to add supplemental disability insurance to cover closer to 100% of your income. If you have disability insurance through your employer, your benefit will be capped at 66% of your income. The benefit received from a group disability policy (through your employer) is taxable. Supplemental disability insurance benefits are not taxable. You can add Catastrophic rider on an individual disability insurance policy, to cover up to 100% of your income in combination with your existing employer group DI.

Illinois does not have state short term disability. Social Security disability is a federal program. You can get short term disability in Illinois by through your employer, or by working with an agent.

Georgia does not have state disability insurance. You need to approach your employer, and ask to make the option of short term disability coverage available to you and your co-workers. It is something you would pay for yourself through payroll deduction, so there is no direct cost to your employer.

The employer can ask, however, it's your decision to accommodate or not. An employer cannot force you to work without pay. The question is, can you trust the employer, and can you survive without pay.

If you live in Nevada an employer does not have to. In fact the Nevada will defend the employer, if an employee is injured on the job and the employer does not have W/C Insurance. I've been though this.

Wisconsin does not have state mandated short term disability insurance. Benefit checks are sent by the insurance carrier that issued the policy - not your employer.

Individual disability insurance benefits are not taxable, because the premiums are paid with after-tax money. The employer paid disability insurance policies have taxable benefits due to the fact that premiums are paid by the employer with pre-tax money.

The burden of proof is on the complainant (you) to prove discrimination. YOu must be able to show how you were treated differently based on your race, age, color, national origin, disability, sex,or religion. Ask yourself who can you compare yourself to who is similarly situated? If you are alleging disability or religious discrimination, you might also ask yourself if the employer is failing to accommodate your disability or religion or are they treating you in a disparate manner?

Yes. Most people would take it as a sign that the employer actually cares about their employee.

Yes, consult with you employer for FMLA forms and short term disability coverage.

Yes, all employer paid benefits and wages are taxable. There is a way around that if you are an executive. 4lifeguild

We have a personal Disability Insureanc Policy for my husband. He is currently working on commission and is about to undergo knee replacement surgery. Can he get benefits from both his employer and our personal policy?

User Avatar

The employer is obligated to follow its own written policy about employees out on short-term disability leave. The employer cannot, for example, pay for the president's health insurance when she is out on STD leave and then not pay for the entry-level clerk's health insurance when he is out on STD leave. If the employer does not have a written policy, then all employees who take a disability leave should be treated the same.

if your long term disability is integrated with social security disability, then yes. This is the case for most employer paid long term disability plans, or your employee benefits package. If the Long-Term DI policy is an individual plan, not through your employer - you could receive the full base benefit if it's not integraded with Social Security Disability Benefits.
