Q) I am a Florida resident, with the same company Naples Transportation and Tours as a chauffeur for more then 4 years. I need a total hip replacement and I will be out of work for at least 3 months. Is there any compensation that I could apply for to help with my situation? Thank you.
A) You would not qualify for unemployment benefits however you may qualify for short-term disability benefits.
Short-Term Disability Benefits: Employer-provided short-term disability (STD) insurance pays a percentage of an employee’s salary for a specified amount of time, if they fall ill or get injured, and cannot perform the duties of their job.
