Event description

Description

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

Do you need to assess whether an employee is fit to engage in a performance management process or has a current performance management stalled due to unexplained absence?

Do you have an employee who has taken an extended period of sick leave?

Do you have productivity concerns and as the employer you need to determine if there is a medical condition impacting on performance and how you can manage this?

An independent clinical opinion, or more widely known as Corporate Fitness for Duties (CFFD), can be used within the HR framework and will 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.

mlcoa's Victorian General Manager David Rowe and Occupational Physician Dr Simone Ryan will explain CFFDs. We talk about how to approach organising a CFFD and the local options in Shepparton. We will provide advice on how to use the opinion when you receive it and the dos and don’ts of the process. From her clinical experience and practice Dr. Ryan will share some of her own case study examples.
