I'm applying for full-time jobs at the moment having been on part-time contracts for a while. Unfortunatly the work I'm looking at can at times be quite physically active. My RA is fairly settled at the moment (haven't had a really bad flare up for a few years) so I'm tempted not to mention it as I'm sure it would put me out of the running.
For short contracts in the past I have not mentioned it and once did get caught wearing my wrist splints when the boss arrived when I wasn't expecting him.
So does anyone know if I can legally fail to declare a known medical condition (RA), and if I didn't what are the implications if I then need to take time off.
