Concerns over medicals

Madam,

I think the practice of some employers of making their new employees have a medical examination is wrong and should be discontinued.

It does no good and only causes embarrassment, especially to young girls.

My teenage daughter recently started work and was terribly embarrassed when she had to strip and be thoroughly examined by a male doctor.

There is no need for fit and healthy girls to have to be medically examined at all.
