Still able to perform?
Is an employee who has been away for prolonged period of time and wants to return to work still able to perform all of his or her original duties?
What to do if an employee wants to return to work after having been away for an extended period of time due to illness and you are wondering if the employee is still able to perform his or her original duties? What if an employee was involved in an accident that has left him or her with permanent physical damage most likely imparing him or her from performing at the same level as before the accident?
Upon your request your company doctor will examine the employee and evaluate possible permanent impairments or disabilities. This will lead to a list of functional capacities remaining for the employee. In other words, this list will contain the details of what from a medical point of view still be expected from the employee.
Our registered Occupational Health expert will then invite the employee for an interview and based on data from the list mentioned above, it will be determined what possibilities there are for the employee’s professional duties. Evaluation will be perormed as to whether the employee can fully return to the original function with the original duties, or if adaptation to duties or workload need to be made. In collaboration between employer and employee decisions will be made with regards to necessary adaptations and job description.
Outcome of a Function Ability Evaluation will be documented in an extensive report.
