I don't know if there are any such law.

You don't tell which type of work you are talking about. Risks of illness spreading are very much different high in different jobs, so this can logicaly make the employer can't agree to let you start work before you are SURE healthy and with no risk spreading TB to others.

You can ask DOLE.

But any decision you make might impact on your potential employment with the company.

I'm no doctor, but I believe latent tb can SPREAD to others.
If so, then I understand the employer need there is no such risk before they can risk to employ you. Some telecomunication equipment add risk for spreading (if not cleaning it very proper between different users, which I suppouse most people DON'T make realy proper.)
So I believe the employer mean it's NOT about if YOU are fit for work yourself,
it's a question about if you risk to make any OTHER ill...

I suppouse Council mean it's a RELATION between employer and employee. It would be a BAD start if you question if they do corect even before you have started working, specialy when - as I believe - they HAVE a good reason to wait until you are no risk for your coworkers.
