ADA Regulations for Questions and Examinations Post Job Offer

Posted By Cindi

Date: January 6th, 2009

Once a job offer has been made to a person with a disability, the employer may ask questions relating to the disability, as well as conduct medical examinations. The only restriction is that the same questions and examinations must be used with every employee in the same job category. If, during the course of the additional questions and medical examination, it becomes clear that the new hire cannot perform the essential job functions, or that they would pose a significant threat of harm to the health or safety to others or their self, you may withdraw the job offer. Before doing so, however, you should consider if there is a reasonable accommodation that could enable the person to complete the job duties.
