Started a new job with a government and was stupid enough to tell them about my AS. I explained the challenges including 2h of morning stiffness and asked to be permitted flex hours (to allow for stiffness and PT) and/or working from home when things are really really bad (read: so much stiffness that I cannot dress or drive myself to work). Initially got a bad reaction and was told I should have disclosed sooner (?!). HR is no help, referred me to the boss. I was asked to sign a release for my medical records and to bring a letter from my doctor, but not what information they need. Already talked to JAN people who confirmed that I don't need to fork over my medical records. Has anyone had similar issues? What should the Dr say so they have enough information to satisfy them that there is an ADA disability and need for reasonable accommodation, but not so much info that they will get spooked (e.g.: when someone cannot turn in bed to turn off the alarm clock, the boss may infer they can't do the job). Thank you!
