Home - Can we ask for evidence of fitness for work?
May 30, 2021 on chapter Duties of officers

We have an employee who has taken nearly a month of personal leave due to illness. Since the employee works in a high-risk area of the business, we wish to ask them to provide a medical clearance before they return to work. Are we able to do this?

Yes, it is reasonable to ask an employee to provide a medical clearance to demonstrate that they can return to work and perform their role without exposing anyone to an unnecessary level of risk.
