      Someone commenting on one of my columns from several months ago asked for suggestions about when he should tell his employer about his MS and the treatments he’s receiving. I answered, in part, this way:

      I’m fortunate to have worked for a company who had no problem hiring someone with MS and, when necessary, making a few accommodations for me. On the other hand, I’ve heard stories of people with MS whose employers have not been accommodating as mine. So, the choice can be difficult.

      My feeling, from years of working as a manager, is that I would rather have an employee be up front with me than hide potential problems. As an employee I think you will do better personally, and if necessary legally, if you are open and honest with your employer about your illness and your potential needs.

      What do you think? What experiences have you had in the workplace?
