Does anyone here in a health system have insurance that covers fertility assistance or get paid parental leave? Really like my position at my hospital but as we start to plan a family - I'm nervous about the cost. Just looking around regionally - it looks like most health systems don't cover this.
How much to expect in Cobra insurance costs? Description just says I have to pay my full premiums, but I don’t know how much ACN pays (so can’t calc full cost). Thinking of switching jobs to a startup and I’ve already met my deductible so might make sense to keep on my current plan. Anyone who used cobra, how much did it cost? Single or family?
My organization has told that I need to come back into the office full time after I have been WFH (without issue) since last March. I have a 6 month old baby at home, and my bubble consists only of the people I live with. We don’t do anything, go anywhere unless absolutely essential, etc. my job is such that first responders are in and out of the office and the work building all the time, and plenty of them have caught (and passed on) covid to other individuals. Am I being overly dramatic-cont.

Have any of your law firms published a new or revised “remote work” policy - specifically what it might look like post Covid?

My mental health is really suffering because of family drama. Primarily, it's the toxic sexism in my culture (Indian)- feels very unfair how my mom and I get treated, especially by the males (and some toxic females) in the family. Any advice on how to navigate the double standards and lack of decency/respect? I do have a therapist but don't feel as supported with this. Just feeling really depressed, so any constructive thoughts/advice is super helpful.

Feeling really stressed by client on my project. I dont know if I can survive without it impacting my health. Is it possible to get a mental health evaluation to assess?

I do a good job on deliverables, on time and quality work. Seems no matter what, he is nasty. Others say not to take it personal, its just him. But I cant deal. How do I fix this?
