We are often asked by our clients the question – Can an employer ask potential employees about their medical history during a job interview? The question then begs, is it grounds for termination if the employer then later discovers they didn’t disclose a pre-existing condition or injury?
The answer lies in the framing of the interview question to ensure that there is no perception of discrimination by the employer on the grounds of physical or mental disability.
