Do a conditional hire’s physical and cognitive abilities match the demands of the job? For any organization that places people in jobs with high levels of physical exertion, or jobs with a history of injuries, Post-Offer Employment Testing is a crucial step in placing people in the right job. Employers across America are seeking the services of clinicians trained to practice within the boundaries of recent federal court decisions and EEOC enforcement actions. These decisions and enforcement actions have defined the rules for clinicians who perform post-offer employment testing.

What you’ll learn

Employers across America are seeking the services of clinicians trained to practice within the boundaries of recent federal court decisions and EEOC enforcement actions. These decisions and enforcement actions have defined the rules for clinicians who perform post-offer employment testing. The topics discussed and skills advanced include:

  • The importance of having two tests in one: a “safe for testing” protocol and an ability to work protocol
  • When to deny testing versus when to deny employment
  • How to ensure you memorialize the documentation used to write the test protocol
  • How to work with the employer to determine a return-for-testing policy
  • How to listen for a request for reasonable accommodation during testing
  • How to plan a POET based on the physical demands tied to the essential functions of the job
  • The role of physical effort testing during a POET test
  • The role of a physician release for testing and how it affects the test progression
  • Prepare yourself to launch a successful clinic-based POET program
  • Learn how to become an indispensible part of an employer’s hiring, return-to-work and stay-at-work program
  • Learn how to write a defendable Post-Offer test
  • Learn how the amended ADA law shapes what we do, and don’t do, in Post-Offer testing
  • The practical and financial aspects of the experience – implementation, time, documentation and cost
  • Review of studies that support the value of POET

This practical course culminates in the draft and validation of a Post-Offer test. Use the clinical forms provided in the course package or use the Matheson Essential Function Job Analysis and Post-Offer Testing Software to produce valid POET protocols.
