3. If you have a disability or are a new or expectant mother
If you have a disability that does not prevent you from working but might affect your safety or other people’s safety when doing certain types of work, it is recommended that you tell your employer so they can arrange different work for you.
It is also recommended to let your employer know (in writing) if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or have given birth within the past 6 months.
You do not have to tell your employer if you have a disability or are a new or expectant mother, or to disclose any further details if you have already told them. However, if you don’t tell them about your condition they will not be able to take any necessary action to protect your health and safety, so it is in your interests to let them know.
