Home - What happens if a worker refuses to attend a medical examination?
February 06, 2015 on chapter Duties of workers

If a worker is injured at work and the employer wants them to go to a doctor in an ambulance to be checked and cleared for work, can the worker refuse this request?

If the worker refuses your request to be cleared for work by a medical professional, they will be disobeying a lawful and reasonable direction from you. This could entitle you to take disciplinary action, including dismissal.

You should remind the worker of your obligation to ensure their health and safety, as well as the safety of others, and that a medical practitioner must give them the all clear before they can resume work.
