Prior to the offer of employment, the ADA prohibits all disability-related inquires and medical examination, even if they are related to the job. A). Physical Agility Test: Measure s an individual’s ability to perform actual or simulated job tasks. B). Physical Fitness Test: Measures an individual’s performance of physical tasks.
Conditional job offer contingent on meeting the essential functions of the job. Three outcomes of the test: Met, not met or ADA accommodations/medical hold.
Testing Existing Uninjured Employees. This test can be used to ensure existing employees’ continued fitness to perform physically demanding job tasks. It is typically administered for safety-sensitive positions as part of an annual fitness-for-duty certification.
Testing Existing Injured Employees should be used when
- An employee is returning to work after an absence.
- An employee is returning to work post-injury with a modified duty or full duty medical release.
- Employer policy provides transitional work to focus on Stay at Work rather than Return to Work.
- Evidence is needed to address inconsistent behaviors.
- Medical providers need objective information to compare post-offer to post-injury conditions to provide rehab goals that will reduce work-related deficits and identify when Maximum Functional Improvement is achieved.
