What happens at the end of my employee's WorkCover claim?
The claim is complete. Your employee was even referred by WorkCover for an Independent Medical Examination (IME).
But, a lot of what was in that report was redacted before you saw it.
So where to now?
Can they get back to the same role? Safely? What about re-injury risk?
A Fitness For Duty Assessment is a type of Independent Medical Examination (IME) that provides a report on whether an individual can perform the essential and inherent tasks of their role without risk of injury to themselves or others.
A worker may be considered fit to return some parts of their role but not all – which is challenging to all parties. Only an independent medical examiner is able to view the evidence impartially, to provide the advice you need.
