2. Honda terminated Keays because he disobeyed a
direct order to meet with the occupational medicine specialist.
Was this order "reasonable"?
The trial judge ruled, and the court of appeal
agreed, that this order was unreasonable order for three reasons:
only medical documentation would allow the
specialist to understand the employee's condition;
In the same meeting/memo ordering Keays to
meet with Dr. Brennan, the employer informed the employee that
the specialist had already concluded that Keays did not have a
disability requiring him to be absent from work;
and that based on this information, Honda had
already revoked Keays' accommodation.
