Each of our services are performed by certified WorkSTEPS providers. Upon completion of each test, the objective information gathered is entered into the WorkSTEPs data base (if the referral company is contracted with them) and a report is sent via fax or email. The tests performed are defined as follows:
Post Offer Testing
This testing is provided after an application, interview, and hire are done by a company. This test may no be performed until the employer has made a conditional job offer and must be completed before the individual begins work. The employer can require the candidate to demonstrate the capability to safely perform the essential functions for the specific job position and may also collect medical information.

- When the employer has a "reasonable belief that an employee's ability to perform essential job functions will be impaired by a medical condition or that s/he will pose a direct due to a medical condition" (must be based on objective evidence);
- When an employee seeks to return to work after being on leave for medical reason if the employer "has a reasonable belief that an employee's present ability to perform essential job functions will be impaired by a medical conditions or that s/he will pose a direct threat due to a medical condition"
