Has anyone ever tried to get short erm disability from their employer and been denied? I have had all sorts of manifestations from this diease, one in particular is peripheral neuropathy or "nueropathic" pain shooting down my left arm and into my left hand. It hurts quite a bit quite often, and other times, when more relaxed, goes into a numb state. So it makes it a little difficult to be on the computer for long periods of time, which 95% of my job requires in the technology field.
Anywho - I was wondering if someone has been denied benefits and if so what you did to get by?
My employer has flat out denied both my family doctor's and neurologists request to be out until at least the end of April - I was diagnosed 10/25/2012 and have not worked since because how bad off I was. So I applied for disability right away and they denied me. Currently looking for an attorney as well.. I know Celiac disease is included in the FMLA act, so I know I my employer should be giving me my short term benefits.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I am not sure I posted in the correct forum thread, but did not find one concerning this issue.
