Information An Employer Has A Right To Ask About Before Letting You Return To Work

Is What Could Happen To My Health After I Return To Work Relevant?

Next » « Previous


An employer may only obtain the information needed to make an assessment of your presentability to perform your job and to do so safely. An employer may not ask about your underlying condition or what could happen in the future.

Example: Sandra,newspaper reporter, who has been on leave for eight months receiving experimental treatment for non-aggressive lung cancer, notifies her employer that she will be able to return to work in two weeks but will need to continue her treatment for four more months. Because the reporter's job frequently requires her to travel nationally and internationally on short notice, the employer may ask her to provide a doctor's note or other documentation indicating whether she can travel during the next four months and, if so, how long she can be away.The employer can't ask about her projected life expectancy.
