Question: “How can I tactfully and respectfully ask my boss to stop announcing my
doctor’s appointments to other employees? I cover for other areas, and
when I have an appointment my boss will send an e-mail to the employees
impacted (and their bosses) saying, ‘Since Jane needs to go to the
doctor on Friday, here is our revised coverage schedule.’ Or, ‘Since
Jane is going to see the dentist on Tuesday.’ I really don’t wish to
have other employees know that I’m seeking medical attention.” —
