I recently had an emergency surgery done and therefore had to take a LOA. Fortunately I have short term disability. My doc said I should be fine in 3 months (let's use the 20th as an example). I get a call from corporate on the 7th stating if im not back by the 10th they have to post my position.. This sucks for me. I would not lose my job, just my position.. I happened to have a doc appt. that next day and informed him in which he wrote a return note for the 10th. These dates are just examples mind you. Now on the 19th, you get another check in the mail for the 6th-14th. I'm obviously now working and they really only owe me for half of that. I tried calling them today but was placed on a permahold. Would it be unwise to cash this before going to them? Would they know i'm "double dipping" so to speak if I didn't notify them? I'm not trying to screw the system. This just recently arose, so I figured I would ask here.
