Hmm. I’m not sure exactly what you mean by “complete a physician’s statement”.
There are situations, especially under OHS laws, in which employers are required to pay for specific medical exams performed on employees, e.g., audiometric testing for workers exposed to hazardous sound levels. On the other hand, employers don’t have to pay for an employee’s going to the doctor after calling in sick.
So if you can give me some more details about your situation–what kind of physician statement and/or medical exam do you want and for what purpose, I should be able to give you a more specific answer. Glenn. Try me at glennd@bongarde.com if you want to contact me directly.
