I am an epilepsy sufferer and am struggling to get a job let alone pass a medical. Soon as I say I am epileptic I end up losing my job but they will never give me a reason.

Any advice in helping epileptics get jobs? I live in London and still out of work.

Hello Louise

I can hear that finding work has been challenging for you.

You may find it helpful to explore our work booklet. This tells you more about your rights in the workplace and includes information about looking for work.

It also includes information about telling people in the workplace about your epilepsy. In general, whether you need to tell an employer about your epilepsy depends on things such as the type of role you work in, how well controlled your seizures are and whether you would need any reasonable adjustments to be made.

Some people tell us it has been helpful to them to work with an employment service. These offer support to people with a disability to find employment. Maybe you could take a look to see if there is one in your area who would be able to support you to find the right role for you.

I wish you all the best in your search.
