 Section 3306 of the Unemployment Insurance Code is amended to read:

(1) Identification of diagnoses.
(2) Identification of symptoms.
(3) A statement setting forth the facts of the care recipient’s serious health condition that warrants the participation of the employee. The statement shall be completed by any of the following people:
(A) The physician or practitioner treating the care recipient.
(B) The registrar, authorized medical officer, or other duly authorized official of the hospital or health facility treating the care recipient.
(C) An examining physician or other representative of the department.
(b) Except as provided in Section 2709, the director may require the care recipient to submit to reasonable examinations for the purpose of determining all of the following:
(1) Whether a serious health condition exists.
(2) Whether a care provider’s participation is warranted.
(3) The period of time that the care provider’s participation is warranted.
(c) Notwithstanding subdivision (b), if the personal physician of the care recipient certifies to the director that the physician has personally examined the care recipient within the previous 60 days, and the additional examination proposed by the director would present a hardship on the care recipient, then the director, prior to issuing a final notice requiring the additional examination, shall examine all available medical records to determine if the additional examination is necessary.
