What are the common types of pre-employment examinations?

Pre-employment physical exams vary state-to-state and company-by-company. We tailor the program to your needs. Common pre-employment health exams often include:

  • Drug and alcohol tests
  • Physical ability evaluations that cover strength, stamina, and endurance
  • Psychological and mental health evaluations
  • Heart health exams

Pre-employment physical exams that stay within legal guidelines

We work closely with regulatory agencies to ensure you stay in compliance. Promoting workplace health should not put you at risk of ADA violations and discrimination charges. After making a conditional job offer, you can require all applicants for that job to go through a compliant Patient Plus pre-employment physical exam screening.

What are the legal requirements for employers regarding pre-employment physicals?

We take care to ensure that women, minorities, differently abled, and elderly are tested in an equitable, non- discriminating way. We ensure your program is fully compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). We help you to:

Be impartial. Make sure that all candidates for the same job take the same pre-employment tests.

Keep records confidential. Pre-employment medical records should be kept separately from other documents and should be securely stored to keep them confidential.

Make reasonable accommodations. Ensure candidates with disabilities are given every chance to pass the tests.

Obey rules around drug and alcohol tests. States regulate employment drug testing. You will want to follow the rules to the tee when testing urine, hair, saliva, and sweat drug screenings.

Test for what the job requires. Some jobs require physical strength, flexibility stamina and agility. It is important that the test reflect the work expectations.
