    Counseling as an ADA-protected medical examination
    Workforce    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    The Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits employers from "requir[ing] a medical examination" or "mak[ing] inquiries of an employee as to whether such employee is an individual with a disability … unless such examination or inquiry is shown to be job-related and consistent with business necessity." For this reason, an employer can only compel a current employee to undergo a medical examination in limited circumstances, confined by job-relatedness and business necessity. The scope of what qualifies as a "medical examination" lies at the heart of Kroll v. White Lake Ambulance Authority. More
