Can My Employer Send Me to a Company Doctor for Evaluation?
Workers Compensation - September 10, 2015
Can my employer send me to a company doctor for evaluation?
Yes. Your employer has the right to have you examined by a doctor of their choosing at a reasonable time and place.
NOTE: FAILURE TO ATTEND AN EXAMINATION BY A COMPANY DOCTOR MAY RESULT IN DENIAL, SUSPENSION OR LOSS OF YOUR WEEKLY WORKERS COMPENSATION BENEFITS.
If your employer schedules an exam by a company doctor, the employer must pay for the exam. Your employer must also reimburse you for the cost of travel to and from the examination (by the most convenient means). They must also reimburse you for the cost of necessary meals if it is a long trip, and your lost wages, if any.
