If I were thrown in prison, I might legitimately object, but if I were
arrested and questioned, that is exactly as it should be, for I would
be a legitimate suspect.

Society is full of inequities :  you can protect an organisation
against the risk of employing someone who is likely to be unable
to fulfil their duties because of an undeclared medical condition,
or you can protect the individual against the risk of being deemed
unemployable by an organisation because if known, his or her health
record would make them unsuitable for employment.  You cannot do both.

Far enough off-topic for me to propose that we draw this digression
to a close.
