Have you ever opened up a file to look at an employee’s discipline history, only to come across medical information that may or may not be related to the conduct at issue?
Do you know who in your agency is responsible for collecting medical information from healthcare providers in reasonable accommodation cases?
How much information should supervisors be told about their employees’ health conditions?
These are tough questions, and knowing the answers will help ensure you comply with the strict laws on requesting and storing medical documentation in the federal workplace. Join FELTG instructor Meghan Droste, attorney at law, for this 90-minute webinar on a topic we deal with in both the HR and EEO setting. After a brief discussion on applicable law, Ms Droste will cover:
- How the ADAAA and GINA impact the collection of medical information,
- Pre- and post-employment medical exams and inquiries,
- Conditional employment offers and related medical information,
- Who should gather the information – and who should not, and
- How much detail supervisors need in medical accommodation cases.
This is an area where innocent release of medical information can be expensive – and is an automatic loser even if there was no harm done to the employee. Register now!
