Questions for your employer
The first action you need to take once you have received a direction from your employer to provide private medical information as a condition of your employment is to ask for clarification about the following:
- The application of the Privacy Act
- The application of the Workplace Health and Safety Act
- The terms of your employment contract
We have provided two documents with similar questions to address these three issues. You can pick and choose which issues you raise but we suggest you raise all three.
Lastly, you will need to update the reference to the workplace health and safety act to suit your State.
