Does your employer have the right to deny you going to the doctor after an accident?

I doubt it. This is a free country. Please be more specific and I can give you a exact reason for or against it. For more information see

Many employers have drug policies that include random drug screens or drug screens following an event. Would't you agree that it would be reasonable for an employer to have the right to know if an employee uses drugs which of course is a symptom of extremely poor judgment? Employees who use drugs are far more accident prone. Wouldn't everyone agree that an employer should minimize his risk?

The only thing an employer should accept as evidence of a sick day is a doctor's certificate, and they are exactly for the purpose of recording that a particular doctor saw a patient at a particular time. If you are given one you have every right to check its authenticity with the doctor

User Avatar you should try and fix yourself but my addvice to you is to see a doctor right away:)

Your employer most certainly has the right to make a suggestion. Of course, you have the right to respectfully decline. If your employer insists you take drugs for a mental disorder "diagnosed" by this employer, you have the right to respectfully inform this employer that it is illegal to practice and prescribe medicine without a license to do so. Unless, of course, your employer is a licensed practitioner of mental disorders, but even then, you have the right to respectfully decline.

Yes, an employer can suspend you for a week in a right to work state.
