“Mark “was a technical support analyst for a leading financial institution when he was diagnosed with severe obstructive sleep apnea. Mark began to experience cognitive difficulties associated with his sleep apnea as well as deficits in concentration and memory, and extreme fatigue. Mark had previously received coverage under the family medical leave act (FMLA) and upon its termination attempted to return to work. However, Mark’s return to work was unsuccessful as he remained unable to tolerate the high executive level functions required to meet the demands of his occupation. Mark met with Mr. Riemer and a strategic plan was implemented geared toward transitioning Mark from short term disability benefits to long term disability benefits.
