Unless you yourself give your employer the information on any health problems they can not legally ask you to obtain what they are asking unless it causes an undue hardship on the employer. Such as long term sick leave where it does cause an issue.
If you worked in food, health or a number of other areas where you exhibited symptoms of a medical illness they could and can legally ask. Again, unless you have brought the medical condition (if one exist) to their attention then the proper manner to handle this would be through the HR or through your senior superiors simply letting you know of the issue. To ask for a CD test for claims of body odor is absurd and asking for the note to verify from the doctor is illegal.......You may wish to retain legal council familar with work place discrimination.
Yes, under certain circumstances. But from what you have described........you have given them no clear precise cause or reason to ask you to be checked for a CD. Tell you what. Let me opt out on this. I would like to have one of our medical Doctors who works legal as well take a look at this. I believe he would have some further additional info. Please be patient. I will now forward this over to him.
