Should I Tell My Employer I Have MS?
It’s a question most people with MS who are working ask at some point after their diagnosis. This is a difficult, very personal and emotional decision that requires significant thought and knowledge. It has legal and job related implications that can be ongoing.
When disclosing to an employer, there are many issues to consider. There may be good reasons to disclose and benefits from doing so. However, once information is given, it can never be taken back, so it’s important to make certain that telling does benefit you.
The following interactive tool is designed to help you identify the advantages and disadvantages of disclosure as well as the issues unique to your situation.
