An employee of eight years is on long term sick leave after an assault at work. After six months, they were placed on half pay, although the employment contract allows management discretion to permit the employee to remain on full pay. Personnel now intends to stop pay completely unless the employee gives full access to personal medical records. The employer has refused to permit an independent medical. Is such action legal in relation to the Human Rights Act, ERA, Employment Act, DPA and the Medical Records Act?
