I need to be gone for 8 weeks. Does any HR people know if I can take mix of several weeks vacation time and then some weeks of short term leave so I can get a full paycheck for part of that time?

If it is a personal leave, you would take leave for the whole 8 weeks. You can use vacation time while on leave, but otherwise, it would not be paid.
Its a medical leave so I want to be able to take 4 weeks vacation and then start 4 weeks of short term disability so I don't loose as much pay. But I am unsure whether they would let me take 4 weeks vacation at once or if it would have to be all LOA

Typically, LOA. That protects your average hours. You can still use vacation time during the LOA. Is the Dr. certain about the 4 weeks? Maybe the medical part can be longer.

My advice do it all as a leave of absence. If you have short term disability they pay you half pay. Pay and benefits can help you with using vacation pay to cover the rest. I would definitely call someone at pay and benefits they are best to answer all h th our questions.
