Pre-Employment Medical Assessment

Medical questionnaires can be given to applicants upfront to find out if there are any known medical issues that may prevent or disqualify them from performing the requirements of the job according to applicable job-specific legal requirements.

Because each organization has unique requirements, employers will be required to provide their own medical questionnaires and review guidelines. Questionnaires must be narrowly tailored to inquire only about such physical or medical information that is specifically and directly related to the position for which the applicant is being considered, in accordance with applicable legal requirements.

Key Benefits
  • Determines applicant's fitness for duty
  • Reduces onboarding time and expense
  • Helps ensure safety and reduces risk

Levels of Service

The employer is responsible for sending the medical questionnaire to the applicant and ensuring that the information provided meets all regulatory and legal requirements. Once the applicant completes the form, it is forwarded to HireRight for confirmation that the questionnaire has been completed and the image of the questionnaire is placed in the system for easy access.

The same process as the basic service is followed, but additionally HireRight’s medical team will review the completed questionnaire in light of the employer’s guidelines. A “meets standard” or “may not meet standard –further review required” status is placed on the order based on the team’s review of the information.
