What is Covered?

There is a general legal requirement to ensure that an employer does not put any prospective or existing employee's health at risk and to make any reasonable adjustments. Essentially, any pre-existing health conditions at pre-employment must not be made worse or aggravated by the requirements of the job. Hence a sensible precaution would be for all prospective employees to have a pre-employment medical or health related paper screen prior to starting work or as soon as possible thereafter.

The pre-employment (& base-line) medical will provide a documented record of the state of the employee's health on entering the company. The Pre-employment health screen will also identify any illnesses, both physical and psychological, that may affect the prospective employee's ability to do the job and helps to highlight conditions that are covered under the DDA. This will allow you to protect your employees from situations that may cause harm. The record can also assist in countering any would be ill health claims subsequently made by the employee.
