Verified 31 March 2022 - Directorate for Legal and Administrative Information (Prime Minister)
Yes, as an individual employer, you have to take care of the medical follow-up of your employee. They should have the following medical examinations:
- Information and Prevention Visit (Pvi)
- Periodic visits
- Recovery visit after a work stoppage
- Mid-career medical visit
The rules that apply are same as for any employee.
If your employee has several employers, each of them must ensure that the employee receives compulsory medical follow-up. The individual employer could be held liable if that is not the case.
You must join an occupational health and prevention service.
This service is authorized to provide medical surveillance of the employees of the individual employer.
To obtain the contact details of the relevant health and prevention service, you can contact the Departmental Directorate of Employment, Labor and Solidarity (DDETS: titleContent or DDETSPP: titleContent).
