Fit for Duty

If you have a non-work related medical issue that your employer is concerned might affect your ability to work safely, you may be called in for a “fitness for duty” examination. Be aware that in this circumstance, we are representing your employer to be sure that you can work safely without posing a risk to yourself or your co-workers.

We do not share the details of this evaluation with your employer. The only information they get is whether you can do the job, need restrictions or are not able to work safely at this time. You may need to visit your primary care doctor or a specialist so that a letter can be generated to us regarding your medical condition or treatment plan before you are released.
