Can the University require a second opinion?

Gallaudet may, at its expense, seek a second or even a third opinion on the status of an employee's health condition. The second opinion may not be given by a health care provider employed on a regular basis by the University, and the University cannot regularly contract or otherwise regularly use the services of the provider. If the opinions of the University's and employee's health care provider differ, the University can require a third opinion at its expense. The third opinion should be from a health care provider agreed to by the employee and the supervisor. The third opinion is final and binding.
