Our expert says:
I agree with Maria - discuss this with the Dept of Labour and perhaps CCHMS and even a good labour lawyer - I don't think they're allowed such a fishing expedition, and if they are, they shouldn't be. I don't think they're allowed to discriminate against people with existing medical conditions . Maybe they need a reminder from the Dept and/or a lawyer that they are not allowed to do this, let alone to demand such information under threats and duress. And your doctor is NOT allowed to provide any medical information to the employer without your informed and express consent.
