I do preload in a hub in southern california. I was in a bad car accident and broke my hip, leg and some toes outside of work about 2 weeks ago. I've talked to the union and they've told me to call up aetna and sign up for the short term disabilities. I was also told that I would have to call into work once a week. So I was ok with this and I recently found out that aetna aproved my disability. But just last week I was mailed FMLA papers from the company. Do I need to fill these out also? Its a whole bunch more papers for my doctor to fill out. The union told me nothing of this and looking at the FMLA papers it looks like they have the right to drain my vacation time also. Since I'm already aproved for Short Term Disabilities is there any need to fill out FMLA also?
