Disability-related inquiry

A disability-related inquiry is a question asked by an employer about whether a person has a disability. The question can be direct or it can be such that an answer would likely reveal the information. A disability-related inquiry might occur during a job interview, where a prospective employer might ask a job applicant about a disability. It might also occur once an employee is hired, for example if an employee’s manager asks these sorts of questions.
