Have you missed work as the result of illness?

Question Intent
Employers may not know what constitutes an illegal question.

Answer Tips
Give them the benefit of the doubt and ask if they could please re-phrase the question. If you are comfortable answering the questions, you may choose to do so. If you feel uncomfortable, diplomatically request clarification on the relationship between the question and the job requirements.
If there is information about you (such as a disability) that may impact on your ability to perform the job, you may choose to disclose this to provide the employer an opportunity for accommodation. Feel free to discuss any sensitive issues around this with a Career Services Advisor or Co-op Co-ordinator.
