As you all know treating a person less favourably because of their disability inside the workplace and during the recruitment process is against the law.
However, it is not always as clear as people think as to who is disabled. Not all disabilities are obvious. You can have a mental condition or an ailment as serious as HIV that doesn’t always present obvious physical symptoms.
So the confusion and dilemma arises: do you & how much do you tell your employer and what adjustments should they be making, if any?
Some questions have simple answers others are very specific to your situation. Often people do not seek legal advice due to the fear of costs, reprisals & breach of confidentiality.
However, we feel that keeping silent hurts you and your career and it fails to educate employers.
