I have worked sooo hard to get to were I am today but at the same time I am in really bad pain Thank you for your time in this matter and look for forward to hearing from you guys.



  • Do you have any short term or long term disability at work? If not maybe you can get a LOA unpaid? It's hard if you don't have any benefits to fall back on or holidays. Take care. Charry

  • Depending on what state your in, will depend on your wether they will reserve your position or not. I would speak to your HR rep, and find out how you stand with the employer. Also it will depend on your companies policy on leave of absences. So while you might have the benefits for long and short term disability, the question I think your asking is do they have to maintain your position. In most instances the answer is no, legally. But if you are in good standings with your employer and are a value to them, they might want to on those facts alone. If your close with your boss and have a good relationship with him/her, find out what they think. FMLA runs on a rolling calendar year, so depending on when you used that time, you might have it renewing again.
