if you go into anything related to Medical Hepatitis test is compulsory, per hospitals' rules

for other areas not required, but if you are currently suffering shouldn't you take some responsibility till you are cleared?

clarify what?

if your employer has a policy to screen for Hepa and denies you work that's the end of it

you can't insist they employ you

as i said, if your employer deals with medical stuff 99% you will be asked to submit test results taken in Singapore and if you are a carrier they will reject you, most likely, from what i know

and now some employers of FDW too have started screening for HEP and have every right to reject you if you are a carrier ...
