I live in California and my doctor wants to take me out for 8-12 weeks for a non-work related medical disability. A few questions, please:
1. What type of disability do I file (family leave or STD)? I have over 300 hours of personal sick time accumulated.
2. Is my job protected? I'm an exempt employee.
3. I don't want the nature of my medical condition revealed. It's not permanent. I know it will be on the form from the doctor to HR, but I don't want anyone else to know.
Any advice is extremely appreciated. Thank you.
