Event description

Description

Do you have staff that are not meeting performance expectations?

Do you have an employee that is having treatment for an illness that maybe non-work related (e.g. Cancer or an old football injury)?

Do you need to assess whether an employee is fit to engage in a performance management process?

Do you have a duty of care to manage risk to the worker, their colleagues or the public?

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.

mlcoa's Victorian General Manager David Rowe and Occupational Physician Dr Simone Ryan will explore CFFDs and their core elements. They will provide practical advice Do's and Don'ts, and cover the situation where an employee does not wish to disclose their medical condition - all presented using real case studies and experience.
