Essential Function Job Analysis and Post-Offer Employment Testing Software

The Matheson Essential Function Job Analysis (EFJA) and Post-Offer Employment Testing (POET) software modules are each time saving, powerful tools. An up-to-date essential function job analysis (EFJA) has become the “go-to” document used in the hiring, post-offer testing, return-to-work FCE, and reasonable accommodation processes. Companies in tune with the demands of the Americans with Disabilities Act realize the necessity of updating old-school job descriptions with an analysis that links the essential functions of a job to the physical demands of that job.

The Essential Function Job Analysis Tool

  • Perform a simultaneous search of four databases to build an employer-specific, job-specific essential function list
  • Click once to transform a job specific essential function list into a narrative job description
  • Click once to create a job analysis report with links between the essential functions of the job and their associated physical demands
  • Click once to produce verbiage for an online or print classified ad
  • Organize records based on the employer/department/job
  • Pull previously created jobs from your database for use with similar employers
  • Record the licenses, certificates, tools, and materials associated with a specific job
  • Link essential functions to Dictionary of Occupational Titles frequency terminology (Sedentary, Light, Medium, Heavy, Very Heavy) for use in State worker’s compensation systems
  • Record more specific amounts of lifting, carrying, pushing, pulling, awkward posture, and standing than is allowed in the DOT “Strength” classification system
  • Report specific measurements in terminology required for ADA Title I employment entrance examination (aka POET) test preparation (i.e., Lift 35 pounds, 6 inches to 36 inches, 4 times/hour, Poor Grip, Slippery Surface; rather than “Medium”)
    Report specific measurements in terminology required for ADA Title I return-to-work and stay-at-work evaluations (i.e., Lift 35 pounds, 6 inches to 36 inches, 4 times/hour, Poor Grip, Slippery Surface; rather than “Medium”)
  • Include environment, exposure, and environmental hazard measures in your reports
  • Include a standardized Physical Demand Level (PDL) classification with each analysis

The Title I Employment Entrance Examination (aka POET) Test Protocol Development Tool

High risk jobs often warrant post-offer testing to screen for those individuals who demonstrate inability to safely execute the physical demands of the essential functions of a specific job. With a current essential function job analysis in-hand, creation of a valid post-offer test protocol is a matter of linking a valid test measure to the physical demands of a high-stress essential function.

  • Automatically transfer job demand measurements to test development window
  • Screen pre-test safety checkpoints
  • Follow system suggestions for which physical demands to test
  • Categorize physical ability action items into “test, observe, or inquire” pools
  • Write test instructions based on physical demands and physical ability action item categories
  • Build a test circuit from questions asked during test design
  • Gather each conditional hire’s demographics as required by EEOC disparate impact metrics
  • Automatically calculate safe heart rate
  • Report the outcome of the employment entrance examination (aka POET)
  • Retaining an employer’s EFJA and POET protocols is easily accomplished with the combined Matheson EFJA and POET software.
