I did. You have every right to ask for an accommodation but do so thru HR. Your partners don’t need all the details and unfortunately there remains a stigma. I know firsthand the negative situation that bring honest with my boss about mental health can create.

It’s a reasonable accommodation, talk with your dr and hr.

MA insurance coverage question. Client insurer is trying to close out a claim where insured was reasonably liable and insurer paid out the claim. Insurer sent a general release to claimant. General release has the standard language releasing “all know and unknown claims.” Claimant is saying that it won’t sign release with the “unknown claims” language and retained counsel who is saying it’s bad faith and violation of MGL 93A /176D to insist on having the general release signed as is.
