Fit for Duty - HR Advice on Corporate Fitness for Duty
A Corporate Fitness for Duties (CFFD) assessment can assist an employer to:
- Confirm the existence of a medical condition and if it is impacting on the employee's ongoing ability to safely perform the duties of their role
- Determine whether it is medically safe for an employee to return to work following illness
- Understand the impact of a medical condition and / or treatment on an employee's ability to perform their role
- Clarify what restrictions / modifications are required to enable the employee to continue at work in a safe and productive manner.
A CFFD may also be used in the context of any post-offer, pre-employment medical screening or as required after an employee's leave of absence. Using real case studies and clinical experience, provider of independent medical services Mlcoa's Victorian General Manager David Rowe and Occupational Physician Dr Simone Ryan will explore CFFDs and their core elements, including scenarios where an employee does not wish to disclose their medical condition.
