Foreign companies based in India often ask in the job application, if the candidate has a disability. Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is one of them.
In my case, I lose sleep and have stomach pain if food is not fully cooked or if it is burnt. Even pizzas, rotis, packaged snacks etc. cause this issue if it is not properly cooked/baked/fried. A doctor says it might be IBS, but there is no test to definitively prove it. I am also recovering from chronic eye strain, which requires me to always get 8hr sleep, take 5 minutes rest by closing my eyes after 20 minutes of computer use and the sum of the 20's shouldn't exceed 6hr/day. This eye strain of extraocular muscles also cannot be proven, but there are doctors who know my case history.
So my question is if anyone here knows of people who have declared a disability of this nature when applying for jobs. Before joining the company, did they need to submit a doctor's certificate? Do companies insist on tests or test results to prove the disability?
