The boss cannot sit in on your medical appointment

A number of alarming claims have been made by members recently of management and rehab providers forcing themselves in on medical consultations, and wanting to speak directly to your doctor.

Your consent is required before any Australia Post representative can sit in on your medical appointment.

And this is not just limited to your manager. If you’re on a compensated rehabilitation plan, your consent is required even for the Australia Post rehab provider to be present during a medical consultation.

If you are suffering from a work related, or non-work related, injury or illness, do not attend a facility nominated doctor (FND or WorkReady doctor) and if your manager or rehab provider is attempting to push their way in to your medical consultations, alert your State Branch Official immediately for assistance.
