Discrimination on the Job

questions & answers

Question: When I apply for a job, should I tell them about my disability?

Answer: Probably not. Even though discriminating against someone because of a disability is illegal, companies still do it. When you are applying for a job, the company cannot ask you about your health. Your employer can only ask whether you can do the job. You probably should not volunteer any information about your disability, unless you need to be accommodated to fill out the application.
