You don’t ask, you just say you’re really sick and will be working remote.

Any manager would rather you stay home and take the meeting remote than get everyone sick. Just be honest.

Just ask. Say you are very sick and out of consideration for your recovery and the well being of those around you, you’re kindly requesting to stay home. It would be somewhat selfish to not be remote, though I understand you may feel it is not a choice.

You don’t ask. You say you are too sick to travel and will be working from home.

I'm sorry that you work for a supervisor that you don't feel comfortable asking them directly and feel like you need to post this question on FB.
As an engagement manager, my team's health and family comes first, project work second.
Your supervisor should cover for you with the client!

Don’t get your team sick. Just say you are sick. I’m sure they will understand your misery hearing you on calls.

I got an offer letter from a company working as a WFH 1099 contractor for 2 years then to hire if everything goes well. It’s 40 hours a week + I currently have a toddler who goes to daycare full time, but we were planning on trying for a second child within the next year. Anyone else pregnant during a similar experience? I’ve heard of companies letting contractors go in the past since they aren’t an employee and I’m nervous about that.
