Epilepsy
Communication Etiquette

If the person brings the condition to your attention, you may ask whether the condition might have an impact on their work and if there are any necessary accommodations.  If applicants mention seizures, interviewers may ask whether seizures are under control, and if not, what people in the office need to know in the event of a seizure.  This information, however, usually isn’t needed until after a person with epilepsy is hired.  Do not be over solicitous.
