That is the one area where our jobs fall short is disability. They rather you die or get your 20/25 and out god forbid getting hurt permanently.
Edit unless you are working past retirement years. when such things happen....
What is it that you do? Not sure I remember or if we talked about it?
The screwed up part is that others who had seizures on the job, are back to work. Those folks could have claimed it as work related since it was on the job and they would get 66.6% of their salary for the rest of their lives if they would be cut loose. Mine happened at home and I went to a doctor to make sure I was going to be ok and get medicine. City found out, and after my sick leave ran out cut me loose. It wasn't "work related" so it was easier to save the money on my salary than paying me for nothing.
Union, no help unless you're one of their drinking buddies.
The city is clueless because I collected unemployment for 2 months after, which the city has to pay a portion of. The city filed a suit and set me up a hearing real quick where I had to explain why I was collecting unemployment as if I was "fired" when the city was trying to say "I quit" on my own terms. I didn't even bring the lawyer along, cost me more money, the city tried telling the hearing officer that I didn't try to get back to work. I showed the officer my stack of paperwork of emails and phone calls I made.
Officer told me I'd hear within 30 days a ruling of whether I'd keep my unemployment or have to pay that money back. In just two days I got a letter telling me I was right and entitled to it. Baltimore city government is a joke.
