I am currently on LTD from my employer with eligibility thru Oct 2020. My insurance provider has asked my family doctor for an update on my status (asking for medical charts, consultation reports from Sep 2019 to present). 1) is this something the insurance company can ask for? Also insurance sent me a document asking for me to provide the following information: work experience for the past ten years, education, hobbies, volunteering, do I have a valid driver's license, a list of all my computer skills. 2) do I have to provide this information? thank you for any assistance you can provide on the above two questions.
Hi, I am trying to return to work from a LTD claim and employer is questioning my return and trying to find a way to refuse. Can a employer legally do this?

I have applied for STD due to Epilepsy but my insurance company is taking too long to approve. Should I am concerned and apply for other benefits such as EI sickness or CPP disability? Would I be eligible for those as I am still an employee at my company but on leave?
Hello, thank you for your help. What do I do if I feel my employer did not try hard enough to accommodate my doctor’s accommodation request? They are a big firm with plenty of resources. I went on leave from a new job for depression. My doctors all recommended that I be put back in my old job for 6 months and then return to my new job afterwards. My disability provider verbally told me this request would never have been approved because “temporary becomes permanent” and they will look into their policy. My current manager told that he asked my old manager (same firm) if I could return to my old job and she said “No, we don’t have the budget and the position is filled.” I know my old job as a compliance manager had a whole team with the same role. I also am wondering why HR did not go to my old manager to make the formal request, or come up with a creative solution. Thank you again.
