Pre-employment medical tests must be job-related and assess the candidate’s ability to perform the requirements of the job, not their general state of health. Employers should provide the doctor conducting the tests with specific information about the type of activities the person would be required to undertake in the role. People who use hearing aids, glasses or other equipment should be allowed to do so during the test. After the results come through, the employer should advise the candidate of the outcome of the test and ensure that the information is treated with strict confidentiality. An employer cannot refuse to employ a person on the basis of a medical test that discloses a disability which is unrelated to the adequate performance of the job. Employment medicals may include a medical examination, stress test, vaccinations, spirometry and hearing (audiology). Generally, your new potential employer will book the employment medicals direct and provide you with the details; however, on occasions you may be required to do so.
Doctors at Central Health centres can provide pre-employment medicals and other medical assessments. For corporate clients and more in-depth medicals, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
