Can we direct an employee to undergo a medical examination?
An employee of our company is currently recovering from shoulder surgery, and is on restricted duties and hours. We have had several medicals done through the workers’ compensation insurer but due to privacy, the insurer is unable to send us the full reports.
Can we dismiss a worker whose health prevents them from performing their job?
Our business employs several delivery drivers. One of our drivers has been on personal leave following heart surgery. According to his doctor’s advice, due to his age (65) and physical condition, he will no longer be able to perform his role.
