Should I keep my narcolepsy a secret from my employer?

Tell Your Employer

Without reasonable accommodations, a narcoleptic may have great difficulty meeting job performance objectives. Since an employer cannot provide reasonable accommodation if narcolepsy is kept secret, it is important for narcoleptics to reveal their limitations and needs, if any. Disclosures and any specific requests should be in writing and directed to the appropriate personnel. With a reasonable employer, the reward should be an enjoyable and productive work environment.
