David Yazbeck Moderating Lancaster House Conference on Independent Medical Examinations

On June 11, David Yazbeck will be moderating a Lancaster House Conference on “The ABCs of IMEs: When are they useful, when are the required?” The conference will discuss the ins and outs of employer requests for independent medical examinations (“IMEs”) to verify or obtain information about an employee’s medical condition. The panel will discuss the ground rules for employer requests for IMEs, whether such requests are becoming more common, whether IMEs should be sought only as a “last resort”, how the parties can ensure that privacy rights are being respected in the IME process, and what consequences an employee may face on refusing an IME.
