There is no legal obligation for a person with a disability to disclose information about their disability unless it is likely to have an effect on:
- their ability to meet the inherent requirements of the job
- their ability to work safely
- the safety of co-workers.
However, in order for a person with a disability to request reasonable adjustments they will need to disclose their disability. Disclosure of disability may occur during the application process, during the interview process, during the induction period or anytime throughout employment. Adjustments, including flexibility, may be required at any time. Reasonable adjustments may include job design, modified equipment or flexible working arrangements.
Where pre-employment medical information is required, it must be relevant to the inherent requirements of the particular position and be included as a requirement of the position.
