I am currently using medication for a non-life threatening, but serious physical health condition that can sometimes affect my ability to sleep well and thus affect my productivity. The medication does NOT affect my productivity or mood. I don't know how much time it will take for the condition to go away or if stronger intervention is needed. As an aside, I lost a significant amount of weight and became underweight because of this condition. My weight fluctuates by large amounts, but I never end up looking emaciated.
The recruiter has asked me to fill and e-mail them a form which will reveal all the things that I told you about. This form seems to come from the health insurance company. I had filled a similar form for a previous employer, but I don't remember if it asked such questions.
I am wondering if I need to disclose this information to the recruiter. I am concerned that the recruiter could easily use this information against me, because of the terms in my contract. I am on a short-term contract with the possibility of full-time hire. I even started for working a few days and learned that junior contractors have been let go by the client, well before the end of contract, due to various reasons. I don't want to end up like them because of this form.
Do I need to e-mail my form to the recruiter or can I just send it to the health insurance company instead, without making it look odd to them ? I don't think that the recruiter needs to know all this because I am doing software development and not a job that requires lifting heavy things or being alert all the time (eg. pilot).
