Greetings: I am finally returning to work after almost 2 months of disability and I am worried.

My boss has not returned any calls. The Disability claim representative keeps telling me they will render

a re-decision on a turned down claim (My dr was out of town and could not meet their paperwork deadline)

He wrote me back in for 4 hours a day. I heard back from HR that I should go in and fill specific paperwork.

I left two messages for my boss letting her know about my return date and asked if I can work 12-4 (best for business

needs and myself) I never heard back from her.

They already put me on a behavioral warning for something I did not do.

Any experience? Any advice I really need it. I have decided that rather than going in at 12 I am going to go

in at my start time and let her know I did not know what she preferred. My worst fears

are that they are going to fire me and the disability group is going to say you are denied again.

I need to remain calm for my health...I may have now had a seizure and I am working with my Dr to see if I

have developed anti - bodies to Remicade - Wow what a ride. Any advice = Thanks.

I am sorry to say I do not have any advice. Just be honest, stong and calm when dealing with your boss.

Just wanted to wish you the best.

I doubt they will fire you when you return. If you were to sue it sure would look bad on their part.

I would make sure you have all the paperwork filled out and copies with you.

Also, Call HR and let them know your supervisor has not responded. I am in HR and I usually deal with the people out and then I contact the Supervisor letting them know any restrictions the employee might have.

If your Dr released you to full duty then I would go in at your usual time. if the Dr said restricted duty then you can call HR and ask if you can be accomendated with the restrictions...

I hope all that made sense, I am at work and typing fast :)
good luck!!!

Did you file for FMLA before you went out on disability? I was under the mistaken impression that being on disability saves your job but you are still required to file under FMLA for legal protection.
