When is the best time to disclose your disability? During the interview phase, when you first start, or when the issues first come up and you need accommodations?

For me personally? Never. As a woman a POC I don’t want to give anyone a reason to put a target on my back or to feel like they don’t want to give me the best cases because they think I’m too fragile to handle it. But the answer is different for everyone depending on their comfort levels, the extent they need accommodations, how flexible the workplace is even for people who haven’t requested flexibility, etc.

I would not disclose at the interview phase but after i got hired and sitting down with HR.

Agreed

I wouldn't disclose this information until absolutely necessary especially not during the interview. Wait until an issue arises.

I hate to say it but I think the best time to disclose is never. I just don't see the upside of any accommodations outweighing the downside of the negative stigma, etc. Or maybe my firm is just toxic, which is also quite possible.

I agree. I’ve seen bad things happen to people who have disclosed even physical disabilities requiring work from home. Physical disabilities are more accepted than mental ones. Firms are the worst offenders as far as ADA violations go because lawyers feel they’re above the law. For this reason, I don’t disclose or say I have medical appointments.

I don't disclose it during the interview phase. I would disclose it after you are hired. That is just what I would do personally.

I wouldn't reveal it during an interview. Otherwise I would only be setting myself up for failure. I wouldn't reveal it either right off the bat. Disclose your diagnosis when you feel ready, safe, and need an accomodation. But do remember not to disclose too early or too late.

I would disclose it only to HR after you've secured the job, and have been there at least a few days. Give yourself time to gauge what kind of people you're working with before discussing accomodations.

I would personally hold off on disclosing the information until it is deemed completely necessary. If it starts getting in the way of things, that's when I would have a talk with HR about it. Giving it off during the interview phase probably wouldn't be a wise idea.

Also, not sure it qualifies as a disability.

Of course it does. It’s recognized by the ADA.
