I'm a newly hired engineer who's still on a probation period.
I'm on the autism spectrum (my employer doesn't know) and, in my case, the autism also comes with tiredness issues (my employer doesn't know that either).
I'm currently in the process of being recognized as "handicapped worker" (which I won't have before several months) which will allow me to ask to work remotely and/or to only work part-time.
I'm considering telling my employer about all this (autism + tiredness + working remotely) before having the "handicapped worker" recognition.
Now, I'm wondering:
What would be the drawback of telling them about that after the end of my probation period?
I don't want to be seen as untrustworthy (because I told them after the end of my probation) but I also don't want them to end my probation period because they are afraid of my tiredness issues (if I told them before the end of my probation).
Notes and clarifications
- I don't have much problem interacting with others and, in any case, there is nothing obvious about me being on the spectrum (from an exterior and ignorant point of view)
