A prospective employer can request that you disclose all pre-existing injuries or medical conditions that you might reasonably expect could be aggravated by or impact on your duties at work.
Employers must request this information be provided in writing.
They must also advise job applicants that if they knowingly supply false or misleading information they may be denied the right to claim workers’ compensation if their undisclosed injury is aggravated as a result of the employment.
