I'm curious to know how many folks have informed a boss / employer or client (if self employed) of their sleep apnea? Has anyone told their boss during a job interview? How did it go?
I understand some jobs may require it. I've seen a thread about DOT compliance requirements for commercial drivers. What about desk jobs? What if your job is, say, a computer programmer?
I'm tempted to say that unless you have a job with high risk or you are in a position to put others at risk, or you cannot be functional on a daily basis, then it's not necessary. However, even with mild OSA, I think we all have our bad mornings once in a while... and it may become self-evident at work. For example, although I don't doze off personally I have coworkers that fall asleep in meetings.
