Medical check up

    Are companies skipping medical check ups for new job applicants because of CoVid?

    I have applied for a lot and in my searches I see a lot of jobs for an immediate start. I recently spoke to someone at a recruitment agency and the job we were speaking about has an immediate start if the interview was successful.

    There doesn’t seem to be any medical being done.

    Not all jobs have medicals

    I've never had a medical, I suppose it depends on the industry.

    Personally I'd be more put out having to go for a medical but that's just me.

    Sorry I should have been more clear in my post. The Jon’s I have applied for are mainly warehouse and manufacturing.

    I would expect them to to do medicals before hiring.

    I’m not demanding they give me a medical ;) truth be told by f I need to get one it is damn inconvenient.

    I was just curious as it seems like no company is doing them anymore.

    Continuing employment could be subject to a medical after you start. That would not be unusual.

    I know there is companies that do that but I thought every everyone had to to do a medical before they actually get hired.
