Managers often assume they are free to devise various tests to evaluate suitability for roles, or readiness to return to a role following a period of leave. These exercises may take the form of:
- Math and reading comprehension tests
- Physical “fitness for duty” tests
- Task simulation
- Personality or psychological test
- Language proficiency tests
Such screening procedures can place the employer at risk of discrimination claims, including claims of discrimination based on disability — an area of law that’s a current “hot topic” for EEOC enforcement.
Join us to discuss how you can assure that any tests used within your organization pass legal muster, and best practices for designing and implementing screening procedures that are helpful, effective — and lawful.
