Employment Help With Epilepsy

Sandy Finucane talks about employment. Visit TalkAboutIt.org to watch more celebrity and expert interviews.

  • Many people with epilepsy are able to work and successfully carry out their job duties.
  • Having occasional (or even fairly frequent) seizures may make your job hunt more challenging but not impossible. The better qualified you are for a position, the better your chances of success.
  • However, myths about seizures and discrimination can make you reluctant to tell your employer that you have epilepsy or seizures.
