short term disability and vacation/sick days

Discussion in 'UPS Discussions' started by UnderPaidSucka, Dec 27, 2013.

  1. Since mid November I have been out on short term disability. I went back to the doctor today and he said I needed a few more weeks. Which will keep me on short term disability until the end of January.
    Being that it is a new year. Will managment burn all my days and vacation time during the first few weeks on January? I spoke to my union business manager and president of my local and they said no. They cant unless I request to be paid out.
    Which doesn't make sense, wouldn't that be double dipping?

    The union president has been wrong before with anther issue I had.
    Just looking for some input.

    Legally, the short-term disability (STD) provisions requires using any available vacation and sick days before beginning STD.
    The new year is an interesting twist.
    Hopefully someone who has experienced this same scenario will be able to help you.

    cosmo1 Just another internet hooligan.

    It would depend on when your sick/personal/vacation days start in your area.
     
  4. January 1st, days and vacation get reset

    Then I guess you'll have to use them.
     
  6. doesnt make sense, how can they pay me if I'm already on short term disability?

    You will not be on STD as long as you have vacation/sick days to use
     
  8. Im on STD right now, and have been since November. Just called HR and they approved my extension until the end of January

    Your management team should be able to clarify all of the issues that are of concern to you at the next PCM.
     
  12. that makes sense, why didn't I think about that? could they video feed me the pcm on skype?
    since I not working?

    You are confusing short-term disability (STD)....

    With the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA).

  14. I'm on STD and I have been receiving checks from Ullico since mid November.
    Payroll has me coded as inactive.

    I thought of that and also it may be different for Teamsters than UPS management.
    What I stated is true for UPS management (as of 2011).
    It may even differ by Local! :knockedout:

    PS - That is also why I included the qualification:
    "Hopefully someone who has experienced this same scenario will be able to help you"
