If an employer asks an employee or prospective employee to fill out and sign a health declaration form (very common in the medical field) like this.
If the employee is afraid that revealing their health condition will subject them to discrimination or breach of privacy, may they conceal their condition?
For example, Alex is being employed by Hospital X to work in their kitchen. Alex suffers from Bipolar disorder but is currently fully capable of work. Prior to beginning work, Alex is given a health intake form. May he fill out X to indicate that he has no conditions if he is afraid of the negative consequences that may result in disclosure?
I am not asking if it is legal for the employer to give such a form. I am only asking about the employee filling out the form whether it is legal or not. Protesting or calling discrimination is often not effective in this case.
