The information you provide is your choice and can be based on what you would like to achieve. You may choose only to share that you have disability, you do not need to tell anyone about the type of disability you experience or your medical diagnosis. When considering what to share, think about what you need from your employer to improve your workplace experience.
It is your right to request that your disability information be treated confidentially, and not shared with others such as HR, your manager or team members. If you experience difficulties at work due to your disability, please speak with your Human Resources team, and/or manager, about what can be done to make things easier for you.
If you need workplace adjustments, you should talk to your manager about what you require to perform your role. There is no obligation to share information about your disability unless it is likely to affect your ability to perform the inherent requirements of your role and work safely.
As is the case with any extended period of sick leave, a medical certificate may be required if you need to take long-term sick leave due to your disability.
