As some of you will know I am an Aussie hoping to return to Oz in July 2012. However, there maybe a fly in the ointment and I would really appreciate peoples experience and or knowledge on the following: -
Do employers in general in Australia require you to have a medical?
Has anyone any experience of being refused employment due to something found during a medical?
When applying for a job are you asked any medical questions? If so, what do they generally ask?
In my line of work, IT Business Analyst, does anyone have any experience of being asked to have a medical?
You may all be wondering why all the questions but as I have a number of medical problems and if employers in Australia are unwilling to take someone like me on then it is a no brainer about moving back. I also no there is the Fair Work Policy in Oz but I am not too sure how stringently this is applied and whether employers get round this, regularly.
To those I have contacted privately I do not believe what you have told me but want to get a much wider view.
