1 What Is Short Term Disability? An illness or injury, including pregnancy, that prevents a person from working for a short period of time is typically referred to as a short-term disability.

3 Is there a difference between Family Medical Leave and Short Term Disability? There is a difference between Family and Medical Leave (FMLA) and Short-Term Disability (STD). The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) requires covered employers to provide up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave to eligible employees due to a serious medical condition.
