STD – employer notification

Does an employee on STD (no FMLA)the company is smaller than 50 employees)have to keep in touch with the employer? If an employee has been out since June (disability payments began in July) are they expected to keep in touch so the employer can plan accordingly?

Unless you are in one of the few states that have state-mandated disability insurance requirements (California, Hawaii, New Jersey, New York, & Rhode Island), employers are not required to provide this benefit at all. Those employers who do choose to offer short-term disability are free to establish policies as they see fit, including how and when an employee on leave must update the employer. How often this should occur may depend on the length of the anticipated absence, and it is recommended that these requirements be addressed in your leave policy.
