What are laws related to work and reporting of diabetics?

Do you have to report to your employer that you are diabetic.

You are not required to report diabetes to an employer, but it might be a good idea. When suffering an attack of hypoglycemia, for instance, it would be preferable that your employer be aware of your condition so that allowances could be made. Not disclosing could lead to difficulties.


Answer by  Huntress (1935)

It is illegal for any business to require their employees to report their medical background. If your employer offers health insurance though you must report it on the enrollment form. If you are worried about having serious symptoms at work you might want to consider confiding under those circumstances. You can NOT be fired for having diabetes.

Although laws can vary by state, you are generally not required to tell your employer that you are diabetic unless you are seeking special treatment or an accomodation due to your diabetes. Indeed, it is illegal for most employers to ask you questions about your health conditions unless certain exceptions are met.

No, thanks to the federal government's disability nondiscrimination act, you are not required to tell your employer that you are diabetic. If your employer tries to force you to, you can sue.
