Deciding if, when, and how to share disability-related information with a prospective or current employer can be overwhelming. The decision-making process requires answering a number of personal questions that may be different with each employment experience. There is no single right or wrong approach to disclosing a disability.
To assist with this process, the Job Accommodation Network (JAN) has a number of publications on its website about disclosure, including the new "Disability Disclosure and Employment — JAN Effective Accommodation Practices Series." It is a summary of issues and answers to some of the most frequently asked questions related to disability disclosure and the Americans with Disabilities Act, and is relevant to both individuals with disabilities and employers.
