Are Employees Required To Supply Health Information To Employers?

This is a question which comes up quite often and employees are often concerned about the privacy of their health information and may be reluctant to provide that information.

Employers have a duty to provide a safe work place and a safe system of work and a safe workplace for all employees. The Fair Work Commission has recently considered this exact point in a case between Colombine and GEO Group Australia Pty Ltd and in that particular case the Fair Work Commission came to the decision that it was reasonable for the Employer to require detail and information about the health Status of the Employee.

Whilst any request for information will need to be reasonable and relevant, and of course the Employer must keep that information confidential, this case does clearly confirm that Employers have the right to request health Status information from an Employee.
