When to Disclose

Shirin Employment, Job Search, News

The BC Human Rights Code makes it illegal for employers to:

  • advertise a job in a way that discriminates against someone because they have a disability;
  • deny someone a job because of their disability, if the person is able to do the job;
  • pay someone a different wage than others doing the same job because the person has a disability; and
  • fire or lay off or demote a person because of their disability, unless the person can no longer perform the essential parts of the job.

Disclosure is your personal choice. Click here for more information on what you need to consider before making the decision.
