Some of your veterans may have injuries or an illness, resulting in a disability because of their service. If an employee reveals to an employer that they have a disability, the employer must accommodate that employee, whether the disability is physical or a mental health issue, so that the worker can perform the essential functions of the job. Be sure to check with disabled employees on any accommodations they may need. A common perception of a “wounded warrior” is a veteran who has lost an arm or a leg, or someone who uses a wheelchair. Keep in mind that hearing loss, vision impairment or having limited mobility of an arm is also considered to be a disability. Veterans do not have to disclose a disability, and employers are not allowed to ask questions about any disability in a job interview, though an employer can ask a candidate whether they can perform the functions of the job.
