In brief: Absolutely

Do not fail to disclose peanut allergy if you have a true allergy, i.
e. Your tongue swells, & you get"anaphylaxis", (where your throat "closes up"& u can't breathe). Depending on the job and your employer, it may not jeopardize ur getting the job, but depending how extreme ur allergy, if a co-worker even walks thru the room with peanuts, it may be 911 time.Carry an Epipen (epinephrine) on ur person, 1@home&1@work.
