{ "media_type": "image", "post_content": "I just read this crazy article about how poorly ad agencies treat people who are struggling with mental illness and other health issues. The person’s boss called them during minor surgery several times (which they knew they were having), to ask about budget pacing. Link to the article here: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/surviving-big-agency-mental-health-story-jonathan-jono-decosta\n\nWhat can we do to stop such toxic behaviors? Why does health, both physical and mental, not matter to these ad agencies? I’m curious if anyone else has similar tales. What agency do you think this was at?", "post_id": "5eb088985931e10021727450", "reply_count": 8, "vote_count": 12, "bowl_id": "5565cfca8b2b9a03009acf57", "bowl_name": "Advertising" }

Your last question is the root of the problem. Need to start calling out agencies that conduct themselves unethically. Until there are consequences, nothing will change.

When events like this happen, log it, and report to HR. Yes - it may mean no actions come from it but if push comes to shove and you're forced to prove it, you got a trail. The other way to look at this is that the guy could have simply not answered the call during day of surgery. Once he's back in the office and if/when he's asked to explain, I think a simple "I was at the hospital" would suffice.

Has anyone had success negotiating a large medical bill with a hospital. I had an emergency room visit, resulting in a bill of which I owe $2k (after payments by insurance).
