Conduct Medical Testing of Job Applicants

Key Points

  • Before a job offer has been made, employers may not legally require an applicant to undergo a medical examination.
  • After a job offer has been extended, interviewers may require medical exams so long as they are done for all applicants entering into a particular job category.
  • All medical information must be collected and maintained on separate forms, in separate medical files and kept confidential, even if the individual is no longer an applicant or employee.
