 ABOUT THE WEBINAR
For employers to meet their safety obligations, it is crucial that they ensure their employees are fit for work.  While making these inquiries is often uncomfortable for employers, there are a number of things that can be done to ensure employees can properly perform their roles and employers reduce their risk of unlawful discrimination.  This session covers:

  • Pre-employment disclosure - what should you be getting? Ensuring pre-existing medical conditions have been disclosed

  • Ensuring staff understand safety obligations to report on their ability

  • Workplace policies and fitness for work procedures

  • Independent medical examinations - when can they be requested?

  • Making reasonable adjustments - what adjustments are considered reasonable?

  • Facilitating return to work after a period of time away - practical steps to implement in managing employees who were not fit for work when they return

Attending a TEN webinar couldn’t be easier. Basically it’s just like attending a seminar except that you don’t have to leave the comfort of your office or home. You just need to be available at the appointed date and time with your computer and internet connection.

Once you’ve registered for the webinar, we send you a link so that you can login to the webinar from your computer. The speaker delivers the session from their computer in real time. Just like a live seminar, you can ask questions of the speaker. You simply type your question into the question box and the speaker responds to it during question time.
At the end of the webinar session we send you a certificate to confirm your attendance and the number of CPD hours you earned.

You will need a computer with sound, an internet connection and earphones if you need to participate in the webinar in an open office environment (so you don’t disrupt those around you).
