FAQ 2067
Should I disclose a disability, long term health condition or learning difference to my employer or placement provider?

There are a number of resources on MyCareerHub providing advice and guidance about disclosing a disability or learning difference. 

There is no legal obligation to disclose a disability but it is always best to follow a policy of transparency with your practice / placement mentor or employer.

Under Health & Safety legislation, you are obliged to disclose a disability if you are working with children, vulnerable adults, chemicals, dangerous equipment or where there are other health and safety implications.
