Examination and Inquiries of Employees


The District may require a medical examination (and/or inquiry) of an employee that is job-related and consistent with business necessity and may make inquiries into the ability of an employee to perform job related functions.

The results of an employee’s medical examination shall be used only to determine the employee’s ability to perform job-related functions. Information obtained regarding the medical condition or history of the employee shall be collected and maintained on separate forms and in separate medical files and shall be treated as confidential medical records. However, supervisors and managers may be informed regarding necessary restrictions on the employee’s work or duties and necessary accommodation; first aid and safety personnel may be informed, when appropriate, if the disability might require emergency treatment.5
