  • Work Advice: Leaving a job, by decree and by design Jul 13, 2014 6:18 AM
    I was laid off nearly a year ago. When I left, I received quite a few warm messages from my colleagues, but such messages soon ended. Except for requests for help, which bother me.

     
  • Work Advice: When colleagues are expected to carry a co-worker who is suffering Jul 6, 2014 7:01 AM
    I work in a small government office. Over the last few months, one co-worker, “Steve,” has lost both his parents, and his adult child was permanently disabled in an accident. I am sympathetic, but he has spent every day at his desk calling funeral homes, insurance companies, doctors, etc., and then going home without having done any work.

  • Work Advice: The delicacy of disclosing a disability Jun 15, 2014 6:29 AM
    At what point in the job application process should I reveal that I am visually impaired? Last time I was considered for a job, I did not mention my disability in several pre-interview phone conversations with my prospective boss.

     
  • Work Advice: Should you share psychiatrist info? Jun 8, 2014 6:19 AM

  • Work Advice: Minding your own business; getting others to mind theirs May 25, 2014 6:38 AM
    A co-worker recently asked me what was going on between a new male manager (divorced) and our female boss (married). How much do you get involved in rumors? Or warn HR about them?

  • Work Advice: Offering unsolicited solutions May 4, 2014 6:12 AM
    Aside from counseling, how do I learn to handle frustration in the workplace? I am, unfortunately, a very emotional person and show my frustration with situations where everyone knows things are not working, but no one wants to challenge the status quo.

  • Work advice: Music teacher’s lost income not a minor issue Apr 20, 2014 5:12 AM
    I have been teaching piano for 13 years. It is my main source of income, and I love doing it. The problem is that every so often, one of my students quits with little or no notice. My professional reputation is good enough that current or former students will recommend me to new clients, but sometimes it takes up to several months to find a replacement.

     
  • Work advice: Jokes on men? Still not funny Apr 13, 2014 6:12 AM
    The points raised in your column are serious, but it is also important to acknowledge the constant (often incorrect) negativity directed at men. My other male friends and I (in my early 30s) regularly hear female colleagues talking about how “all” men are “evil” and “sexist pigs.”

  • Work Advice: Older worker feels a chill; younger worker may be creating one Mar 9, 2014 6:14 AM
    Reader 1: It has become painfully clear over the past year that I am being excluded from activities for which I once would have been eagerly sought out as a leader. My husband says to talk to HR in case this is subtle age discrimination.

     
  • Work Advice: Elders edged out or denied entry Mar 2, 2014 6:42 AM
    Reader: My firm recently offered buyouts to administrative staff, none of whom is under 46 years old. We have heard that management would like to replace older employees with younger ones making $20,000 less. At a buyout meeting, management insisted salary was not an issue, while acknowledging our industry’s market conditions.

     
  • Work advice: No, it’s not just a joke or a compliment Feb 23, 2014 6:07 AM
    Reader 1: I work in a small, laid-back office where only 4 percent of us are women. My issue is the inappropriate sexual comments I’ve heard men in the office make about some of the other women. For example, one woman sometimes wraps herself in a blanket when cold; one guy said, “She’s probably masturbating under the blanket.”
