Any permanent, probationary, or Management Personnel Plan employee may be required to submit to medical examination by a physician or physicians designated by the appointing power to evaluate whether or not the employee is disabled from performing the duties of the position. Fees for the examination shall be paid by the appointing power.

The examining physician shall make a written report of the examination to the appointing power. A copy of the report shall be provided to the employee.

The employee may submit medical reports or other pertinent information to the examining physician or to the appointing power.

Failure or refusal of the employee to submit to a medical examination required by the appointing power shall constitute a failure or refusal to perform the normal and reasonable duties of the position. In such event, the absence of an examination shall not prevent the appointing power from submitting an application for disability retirement of the employee, or from commencing disciplinary action pursuant to law.
