Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello from JustAnswer.
Could you explain the situation in more detail?
I think that you are asking what a doctor would do if the doctor discovered that someone had forged their name to a note for work.
If that were to happen, a doctor would usually not do anything other than deny that the note was written and may discharge the patient from the practice. Of course, the doctor would usually not be aware of such a note unless your employer were to contact the doctors office for verification. But if the employer were to contact the doctor, the doctor would typically inform the employer that the note was a forgery. Afterwards, the doctor would likely discharge you from the practice.
As for what the employer would do, that is not a medical issue, although your lawyer has said what I think is likely - that the most that your employer could do is fire you.
Is this the information that you are seeking?
