Hi, just been offered a fab job in a school. Occupational Health has sent me a questionaire but I'm concerned questions will be raised when I disclose I'm taking 20mg Fluoxetine a day? Does anyone know how occupational health stand on such an issue? Background: Sept 08 Feeling weepy and miserable and hadn't felt 100% for about a yr. For the last year feeling amazing and life has been fab!
Reallytired is correct. If you do not disclose it and they later find out after offering you the post, they can withdraw the post and dismiss you with immediate effect.
Disclosing it cannot affect your chances of getting the job. The only time Occy Health can recommend you are not suitable for a job should be related to physical issues if the MH issue has been addressed.
If you have been offered the job they cannot retract it from what you have posted - you could legally have them for that if they did, I am sure! At the most, they would ask you to see their own Doctor who would pass you as fit if you are feeling great
