Do I need a medical certificate to return to work after a work-related or non-work-related illness or injury?

Upon returning to full duties after a period of incapacity, an injured employee will be requested to provide a medical clearance. This confirms that their doctors believe that there is no risk of further injury to the employee upon their return to full hours and duties. The request for a medical clearance is made based on the department's obligation to ensure the workplace health and safety of all employees and others at a workplace.
