Recognition of Medical Leave for Lasik Surgery

Question

Hi HR Professionals,

Do you recognise the medical leave issued by an Ophthalmologist when an employee plans to go for a lasik surgery?

Thanks!

I view Lasik as an aesthetics operation. Personally I feel such things should not be under Medical Leave. It should be under the normal Annual Leave. Just like I am taking leave to go for a concert overseas.

We recognize the medical leave but cost of the lasik surgery is at the employee’s own expense.

If MC was given by a registered medical practitioner then it is accepted.

Will accept the MC if issued by a registered medical practitioner. Medical cost will not be covered.

Yes, we do recognize this medical leave but the medical costs are to be paid by employee.
