    Employer forcing me to get my health checkup done from the company hospital

    I am working in a software company. Recently due to the deterioration in my health I had to take a leave and thus informed my employer of the same. When my employer got to know about it, he insisted that I should get my health check up done from the company hospital , which is attached with our firm. But I want to get my check up done from some other hospital where I always go. How should I convey this to my employer?

    Hi aspirant

    I am sure your employer would have just thought of his own benefit when he told you to get your check up done from the company hospital. He should have also thought about you also that what would you like and from where would you like to get your check up done. You should definitely not succumb to your employer's demands and should get your check up done only from where you want it and from only whom you trust. You should explain the same to your employer also.

    Tell him that you understand his feelings but you would like to get your check up done from the hospital where you always go and whose doctors you trust the most. You hope that he wouldn't mind it and would let you have your own way. You don't want to dissapoint him but you hope that he will understand you and that why would you like to get your check up done from there only.

    I am sure your boss will understand your problem and thus will defintely not mind anything. Good luck

    Hello ,
    It is nice to see that he is insisting you for a health check .

    Although it is no harm even going to your company hospital but if you have a regular docter which you visit in some other hospital
    whom you trust , you should convey to him politely that regardless how warm you feel by his concern , you would like to
    visit the other hospital where you would be much more comfortable .

    I am sure there is nothing to be offended about and he will totally understand as refering to the same hospital and the usual
    docter is a common and advisable thing to do .
    Hope you recover soon .
    Thank you !

    hi friend,

    This is a critical situation that you are in.

    As the company would definitely insist you to go through the health check-up from the company hospital itself.

    As the company pays for the hospital that helping in taking care of their employees those who are sick.

    As you are saying that you always seek another doctor regularly.

    So explain the employer that you always seek the advice of the doctor whom you often visit when you are ill.

    Tell him that he is very close to you and he is like a family friend of yours.

    Explain him the situation, by talking only you can solve your problem.

    You can also seek some second opinion from the company hospital by not letting your employer disappointed.


    Hope i have helped you in getting relevant information.

    All the best

    Thanking you...

    Dear Aspirant,

    It is nothing wrong to talk about the right matter.You can just discuss about your issue.If there is any rule to get checked up of health in the hospital of the company,you will have to follow it.But you can also get it rechecked up your health in your private hospital which is your more faithful.The testing procedures are almost same every where.If you get any negative report in the company hospital & if you don't have faith for the same,you can very well get checked up in youe private hospital.You are free to get the test rechecked any where.

    You can say the same thing to the officer concerned.I think you will be allowed for it,because it is your right.So don't hesitate to follow the instructions of your employer.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Ashok..

    Hello Friend,
    If your health is deteriorating then you should get it checked in any hospital.company saying you to get it checked in the hospital of there preference because they have tie ups with company and where they will better treat you and you can also reimburse the same amount ,but you may not reimburse the amount if you get it treated from any other hospital you may not reimburse the amount and that will be your loss.
    now coming to the business perspective if you stay ill and wont treat it immediately that may worsen your condition and you have to take leave for longer time which a company wont want as they have to run the business.so they prescribe you to get treated in the hospital with which the company have tie up and get treated soon ,you will get better treatment for sure.
    Thank You

    Hello,

    Your boss has suggested you to do checkup from your company's hospital.There can be 2 reasons behind it-Firstly,he may be really worried about your health,that is why he has suggested to go there,Secondly there can be some other intention that is from business aspect.If you go to the hospital owned by your company,then they can earn some revenue from you.ie.they want more patients like you to come to the hospital,after all it is a business.You can check out the doctors out there.If yes then you go there as you may get some facilities as you work in their company.If you dont want to go to this hospital,simply tell your boss that you have already made an appointment with the doctor in another hospital or his chamber.

    Dear this is really not going good with you but you should go to the manager of your company and tell them that i always gets treatment from out traditional doctor and the medicines of that doctor suits me well so that i can never leave him and i will always go to him for further treatment because that doctors knows well about me and my health and if i do not pay much money for my treatment like other doctors so that please allow me for my treatment where i want and it is the decision of my personal life and i am not leaving the work in office and if your manager says to you that you should get the treatment in the office hospital then you should go at once in that hospital and try to get treatment and analyze that which one's treatment is better and if the new doctor does not suits you well then you should never go to that hospital

    All the best
