    Bit of an issue here. I am a part time supervisor and I have been out of work for 5 days due to a recent bout of kidney stones. This is the 4th time in my life I have dealt with this, so I know when I have them, and I just pass them at home in horrible pain. As of last Tuesday, I have been out of work. My immediate supervisor told me on Friday of last week, that I need to call HR, I thought because of a scheduled supervisor 3 week training course that I thought he wanted me to talk to HR about. He also told me that I need doctors notes to come back to work. I didn't know that I was required to have these, he never informed me that I needed them, he just told me early on to get better and keep him posted. So I went to the ER and got diagnosed, kidney stones of course, because I know my body, and got a doc note stating I can come back to work-tomorrow-Tuesday. Sent my supervisor all the photos of the ER visit, doc note etc. He then tells me I have to call HR to go on short term disability. I called but they are closed today for the holiday.

    I am confused here because my boss has not told me any of this procedure, didn't let me know after 3 days I have to go on STD. So now what? I have a doc note saying I can come back to work tomorrow. Can I come back to work? Or do I have to go on this STD thing for a certain amount of time?? My boss hardly ever gets back to me. Please let me know how this STD thing works. Thanks.

    Call HR in the morning and they will explain it all.

    After 5 days, management goes on STD.
    The reason is that UPS does not pay your salary ... The STD insurer pays your salary.
