Q: I'm not sure how to tell a potential new employer about my family medical situation. My mother was recently diagnosed with cancer and will soon be starting chemotherapy. Although my siblings can handle most of her treatments, I will still need to help with some appointments.
After losing my job a few weeks ago, I am now the top candidate for a very desirable position. However, I have not yet informed the hiring manager about my mother's condition. Should I discuss this during my final interview or wait and tell him after I start work?
