I discuss in When Should You Tell Your Employer About Your Chronic Condition? how your potential long-term disability claim could be affected by what and when you tell your employer about your chronic health condition. Joshua Goodbaum, who I think is one of the most effective plaintiffs’ employment lawyers in Connecticut, recently posted a great article (at https://garrisonlaw.com/taking-fmla-leave-what-you-need-to-disclose-to-your-employer/) on what your employer is allowed to ask about your health condition when you request family and medical leave under either Connecticut or federal law. Medical leave is another tool for managing the transition from working with a chronic illness to making a long-term disability claim, and the article is a great guide for handling one of the more fraught aspects of asking for medical leave.
