You must evaluate your employee's work duties and environment and consider a medical condition to be work-related if an event or exposure in your work environment:
- Caused or contributed to the resulting condition.
- Significantly aggravated a pre-existing injury or illness.
The exceptions are:
- The medical condition involves signs or symptoms that surfaced at work but resulted solely from a non-work-related event or exposure.
- The medical condition resulted solely from voluntary participation in a non-work related activity
You must obtain medical advice from the employee’s treating doctor on whether there is a likelihood that your employee's work duties and work environment had contributed to the medical condition or significantly aggravated a pre-existing injury or illness.
You can report to MOM if:
- Your employee claims that his work had caused his medical condition.
- You are not able to obtain the medical advice by the reporting deadline.
