Recorded Webinar: Fit for Work and Employer`s Obligations


27th February 2019

Duration:  approx. 2 hours

For employers to meet their safety obligations, it is crucial that they ensure their employees are fit for work.  While making these inquiries is often uncomfortable for employers, there are a number of things that can be done to ensure employees can properly perform their roles and employers reduce their risk of unlawful discrimination.  This session covers:

  • Pre-employment disclosure - what should you be getting? Ensuring pre-existing medical conditions have been disclosed

  • Ensuring staff understand safety obligations to report on their ability

  • Workplace policies and fitness for work procedures

  • Independent medical examinations - when can they be requested?

  • Making reasonable adjustments - what adjustments are considered reasonable?

  • Facilitating return to work after a period of time away - practical steps to implement in managing employees who were not fit for work when they return
