Employment Screening Resources (ESR) can provide information about Workers' Compensation claims and previous injuries.
Reason You need this Information
This information allows the employer to conduct post-job offer reviews in compliance with strict standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
Limitations/Notes on Using this Information
Federal and state laws regulate the use of these records. You should have policies and procedures in place before requesting or utilizing these records. The critical consideration is that an applicant may not be discriminated against on the basis of a lawful exercise of a right to file a claim nor be denied employment if they are able to perform the essential job function with or without reasonable accommodations and are not a health or safety threat to themselves or others.
Under the ADA and similar state laws, such a request requires that there be a qualified job offer before this information can be obtained. Because this information is of a sensitive nature, ESR recommends an employer consult with an attorney before requesting these records.
