It’s six answers to six questions. Here we go…. My husband’s company is trying to find out whose spouse has cancer. My husband’s company is in the processing of signing with a new health insurance carrier. The owner of his company called him to discuss my health conditions (I am on his insurance).

Ask a Manager

A reader writes: I’m fortunate to work for an incredibly supportive employer and to have a really great manager.
