Getting an STD is considered short term disability? <runs off to find a dirty hooker>

I don't think it would be legal or ethical to start a different job while getting paid on this claim.

is your STD insurance through your work? If so, wouldn't they cut that off if you left the company?

just curious, why are you thinking of quitting?

thought when on FMLA you have to work a certian amount of time after it or something like that

If you are starting a new job you are not disabled. Just submit notice, claim/benefits will end. If you are in CA or somewhere east coast it's a bit more hairy.

Oops just saw the FMLA. I would check internally with HR the terms of leave.

Yes and yes.

I am looking to move on to bigger and better things.

It's going to depend on the wording of your policy, but most policies state that payment ceases on the last day of the month in which your employment ceased.

Talk to your HR department.

You aren't required to, but employers can recoup their portion of the premium paid for health insurance if you don't return to work or leave less than 30 days after returning as long as it wasn't related to the qualifying condition or circumstances beyond your control.

So if I do give notice, can the company accept it immediately even though I am on FMLA?

If you give 'unequivocal notice' of your intent not to return, your employer's obligation to maintain your benefits and restore you to your job ceases immediately (barring that you are physically unable to return, but still desire to).
