I am sorry but i won't be able to give you a clear answer either. I assume that it works on a case by case basis and a lot of medical opinions will be involved. The degree of the disability will depend on the nature of the cause, the degree of the loss and it's possibilities for treatment. I assume that if the problem is still treatable for example with hearing aids, then the disability is less.
I would recommend that you get the necessary documentation from your Audiologist (report and audiogram) and then make the decision whether you want to discuss this with your future boss.
Please let me know if you need any further information.
