I was on disability for 2 years up to a few months ago when it changed to “any” occupation. I’m not going to appeal because I don’t think I can win that fight. And I’m sick of dealing with toxic insurance people.
I just really want the ability to go back to my current job if I can somehow get better. I work in a factory for a large corporation, my job is heavy labor. The insurance company has concluded I cannot do my own job. And there aren’t really any jobs where I work that I would be able to do without creating one.
My question is could allowing me to stay on unpaid leave be the accommodation, and could there be an INDEFINITE TIMELINE on that?
I’m not in a specialized job, so it’s not like the company is in the predicament of having to hold my job for me, I’m easily replaced.
I’m sure the company would rather do that than have to make me a job, I would even be willing to give up my medical benefits so it literally cost them nothing. I just want the ability to come back if I can.
I’ve read a couple times that companies can get rid of you after the 3-4 year mark if not on an approved disability claim, so just wondering if unlimited unpaid leave as accommodation is actually an option.
