If there is an employee with a medical condition which appears to impair his/her capabilities to safely and effectively complete work assignments, and a fitness-for-duty examination supports this conclusion, options may include:
- Placing employee in another position which accommodates his/her medical condition/limitations
- Accommodating the employee in his/her current position by temporarily or permanently modifying work assignments and/or work environment
If accommodation is not feasible, the supervisor may be forced to take action to remove the employee for failure to meet the elements and standards of the assigned position. A fitness-for-duty examination may also be offered before management takes disciplinary and/or adverse action against an employee for unacceptable conduct or behavior if it appears that a medical condition may be at the root of the problem.
