Boss not welcome to medical appointment

Injured worker’s medical appointment is a private affair

Bosses (aka employers) are increasingly attending doctor appointments with sick or injured workers – and in some cases are trying to alter their medical certificates to get the sick/injured worker back to work sooner!

For those who still don’t know it, an injured/ill worker’s boss (employer) or anyone related to the employer, such as for example a return to work coordinator, is NOT allowed to attend your medical appointment.

Without the full and informed consent of the patient (and please do not ever consent!), there is no role for an employer in an injured or ill worker’s consultation room.
