Pre-existing conditions presenting at work

Unread post by curious00 » 03 May 2017, 12:32

What exactly classifies as an IOD that needs to be reported?

Does a pre-existing condition like a stroke/heart problems or other medical illnesses, that present symptoms while the person is at work qualify as IOD? An employee fainted and had symptoms of her illness and was taken to hospital by the company car and subsequently booked off for 3 days. Will this have to be reported as an IOD to the commissioner and a claim put in for her hospital bills?
