WorkSafe offers professional Fit-for-duty exams at our Wichita Occupational Health clinic. Fit-for-duty exams (commonly called “return-to-work” exams) give employers, employees, and their co-workers a sense of when they could return to work after a leave of absence for either medical or personal reasons.
What is a Fit For Duty Exam?
A fit-for-duty evaluation is a medical examination that tests whether you’re fit to serve your role in the workplace safely. During an exam, a provider will test your physical, mental, and emotional well-being and determine whether it’s safe for you to return to your job.
These exams often happen after a direct threat to your health, like a physical accident or bout of serious illness. However, fitness for duty exams don’t always occur after physical issues. Fit for duty exams can also be requested if there is a change in a person’s ability to safely perform their job.
Essential Things Employers Need To Know About Fit For Duty Exams.
Fit-for-duty exams are essential to improve company efficiency and ensure the workplace safety of your employees. Knowing your employee’s ability to perform a task based on their medical records can keep everyone safe, but you must be careful when using return to work exams for employee selection procedures.
The Americans With Disabilities Act forbids managers from discriminating against employees because of disability. Therefore, you could be violating the law if you refused to accommodate someone qualified for a job based on a fit-for-duty exam. Be extremely cautious when using this test to avoid legal ramifications and protect your employees and your business.
