An employee spends a considerable amount of his life serving the organization he’s in and the government says in return the least a company could do is provide him basic medical provisions. Medical examination is one of those medical assistances that should be done by the organization once a year and sometimes twice a year to not only help the employee but to check if he’s competent enough to work.
