An employer may not require medical or psychological examinations of employees, unless they are job-related and necessary for business. Employers may conduct voluntary medical examinations, including voluntary medical histories, which are part of an employee health program available to employees at that worksite.
In accordance with PERS Board rule, a state appointing power may require an employee to submit to a medical examination by a physician designated by the appointing power to evaluate the capacity of the employee to perform the work of his or her position; the examining physician shall make a written report of the examination to the appointing power and the appointing power shall provide a copy to the physician designated by the employee.
If the medical examination and competent medical opinion show that a state service member is incapacitated physically or mentally and is eligible to retire for disability, the Board of Administration of the Public Employees' Retirement System shall immediately retire the member for disability, unless the member can be retired for service.
The Board of Administration of the Public Employees' Retirement System may require any recipient of a disability retirement to undergo medical examination in considering a petition for reinstatement from retirement.
