I'm working in a small team at a (growing) startup, and have been asked about a developer applying who worked at my previous company. He started after I left, so I didn't get to know him personally. However, I get on well with my former colleagues and had met them occasionally, so I'd heard some rumors.
So I got in touch, and now found out that person has narcolepsy. I am not sure this will work out well at my company, but I've noticed he does not seem to have informed them of this condition. Which is probably fair enough, given there hasn't even been an interview yet.
Now I wonder whether I should mention this to the hiring manager. Could this be considered foul play? Would it be considered unethical? Would knowing this compromise the hiring process?
My thinking is the likelihood of this working out well is higher if my company and manager know the actual condition beforehand. Then again, this may only be true if the applicant decides to mention it.
Any advice is appreciated. The country is UK, for what it's worth
