I am in Michigan. I was injured outside of work and have been on short term disability for approx 9 weeks. Prior to that i used up all of my premium time (vacation, sick, comp) before going on disability. My department has been accusing me of doing things that they feel I shouldnt be doing while off of work. Although it is completely false, I do not want to return to this department. Are you allowed to pursue other employment opportunities while on disability and are you allowed to quit before returning to work if you get hired somewhere else? Also, are they allowed to fire you while your on disability if they feel you are overextending yourself even though you have all the proper medical documentation authenticating your injury? Thank you.
