Why Organisations ( Corporates ) in India insist on Pre Joining Medical Fitness Tests ? Is this ethical ? Shouldn't they disclose what diseases ( if found ) they'll Reject ?
On the other side there are organisations / schools which talk of inclusion and give conducive environment to even those infected with HIV , and here organisations are asking it's job aspirants to go for " Medical Screening" ...What's this about ?

Few Organisations release there offer letters only post medical test , some ask to get it done before joining .

There need to be absolute transparency around this :

  • Why this Medical test is required ?
  • What specific ailments are they looking for ?
  • In what circumstances this will lead to rejection of the candidate ?
  • Will this report be shared with the candidate ?
I request organisations to stop this practice & spend this money on better causes
