COVID-19 – advice for employers. Read now.

Pre-employment & pre-placement health assessments

The Equality Act 2010 makes it unlawful to ask a prospective employee questions about their health until they have had a conditional job offer.

Employers also have a common law duty, as well a duty under the Health & Safety At Work Act 1974, to ensure their prospective employees are fit for their specific employment and are aware of potential risks to their health.

Pre-employment or pre-placement health assessments, carried out as detailed questionnaires or face-to-face medicals, will advise the employer on fitness for work. In addition, advice will be given as to whether the individual is likely to be considered disabled as defined by the Equality Act 2010 and any potential adjustments that may be required by the prospective employee in the work place will be described.
