Roubler FAQ

How do I modify an employee’s job to make it “safe”?

This will depend on what the employee’s job involves, and what their medical practitioner has advised are safe duties for them to perform given their particular circumstances. If you have received an ambiguous medical certificate from the employee’s doctor that is ambiguous, such as “the employee can perform light duties”, you are entitled to seek clarification on what those light duties are in the context of their job description and requirements of the job. Once you have received this, you are able to make reasonable adjustments accordingly. This might include things such as; moving the employee to a desk job where they can remain seated and indoors.
