JAN's Disclosing a Disability in the Workplace

eLearning Module

Knowing when and how to disclose a disability to an employer can be confusing. This module and accompanying material provide information and ideas to help individuals make educated decisions about disclosure. The module provides a brief overview of applicable ADA rules and ideas for dealing with illegal medical questions, gaps in employment, and disclosure in general. The videos depict a job applicant’s decision about disclosing during a job interview and an employee’s decision to disclose and request accommodations because her medical condition has flared up. Service providers such as vocational rehabilitation counselors can use the module and videos to educate their clients or individuals can view them on their own.
