My wife and I just had a baby in February, she ran out of her FMLA last week. She's a nurse who is staying home until this passes since we have an infant at home.

The question is how long has your wife been off work and is she protected by laws other than FMLA, as well as entitled to temporary disability benefits while she recovers from childbirth. I recommend you contact an employer lawyer directly.

if you are not claiming injuries then there is no reason to disclose medical information. Just be sure you don't have some silent pathology going on that comes to light later. getting a good medical check up perhaps with an MRI can be very helpful to ensure there is no bodily damage.
Demanding anything from your employer may not be a good idea. Asking for more pay has a better chance of success, but the employer has no legal duty to pay you more. Tread lightly. There are a lot of people unemployed right now.

generally if your settlement is under $25,000 there will be no structure. It is not worth the effort. First, the insurance carrier must agree to a structure, then the option is to use their vendor, or seek one of your own. The carrier must pay the money into the structure to avoid a tax...Read more »

Your employer cannot compel, or force, you to use your vacation time if you are otherwise entitled to sick leave. Vacation time is yours, and you cannot be compelled to use it for anything other than vacation time. If you get sick, then use your sick time. That is what it is for.

My answer urges you consult a lawyer. Not here in bits and pieces but over the phone at least. A carrier can deny a body part but all any manner of consultations. For deniedbody parts a PQME is needed unless the denial is legal rather than medical.

Your attorney might want to check with the defense where there is any rule in the Labor Code supporting that requirement. That requirement would be illegal, for what if you have any doctor's appointments. It appears that they are trying to harass you.
