Taking your year off for “disability” is a time honored union benefit, use it or you lose it. Many Chicago cops take it a few years before retiring at 50 to Florida. My former brother in law a Chicago cop took his, “his back went out” he said. As he was helping another family member move furniture! A year off, full pay, and he still managed to do his weightlifting program in the basement. There are plenty of doctors who will sign the paperwork.


Ive been complaining to st & trib writers about city wprker absenteeism, begging them to write about for ages..whats most egregious, if your in any city dept you can claim & get paid for a ton of family med leave act days and turn around and work a ton of ot,,and majically claim your dept–from cps to cpd is understaffed.
