Employment medical Exam
Jun 5, 2007

May I ask what kind of medical examination do company conduct to overseas workers particularly from the middle east regarding hepatitis-B? Is it a compelete test or only surface antigen test. How can we get a negative result during the medical exam. so that I can get a work visa, work and feed my family. It feels discriminating.

Response from Dr. McGovern

There are no uniform policies on how employees are screened so I am afraid I cannot help you with your question.
