The Pennsylvania Medical Pay Act requires employers to bear the costs of employee medical examinations when those exams are a condition of employment.

The law covers all Pennsylvania employers and prohibits forcing a job applicant to pay for any medical testing that is a condition of employment. Similarly, employers must bear any cost necessary to produce medical records.

Employers found guilty of violating the Medical Pay Act face a fine between $10 and $100 for each offense.

Remember that the Americans with Disabilities Act has special provisions for post-offer and pre-employment medical exams and necessary testing. Be sure to coordinate those rules with the Pennsylvania law that requires you to foot the bill.

For example, if you require an applicant to obtain a doctor’s certification that he or she has had necessary immunizations, be sure to pay the charge for reproducing the records.
