Americans with Disabilities Act – When can employers require physical examinations?
Abstract: A prospective full-time employee was required to take a physical examination by an employer. When he didn’t pass it, the job offer was revoked and his temporary position was terminated. As this article explains, the Tenth Circuit’s decision as to whether the employer had violated the Americans with Disabilities Act hinged on the position’s essential job functions. Iselin v. Bama Companies, Inc., No. 16-5132, May 26, 2017 (10th Cir.)
