Typical Scenarios for Threat Assessments and Fitness for Duty Evaluations
Central Concept: Conduct Evaluations When Administrative Decisions Are to Be Made Partly on the Basis of the Employee's Mental State
Why EAPs and Employers Should Not Select Evaluating Doctors or Use Doctors Who Will Treat the Employee
- Employer Is Unsure If a Threat Is Idle or If There Is a Danger
- Employee Is in a Safety-Sensitive Position and Is Making Mistakes
- Employer Is Unsure About How to Address Decline in Job Performance
- Employer Is Unsure About How to Manage Mood Changes or Other Problem Behaviors
- Information Is Needed About Reasonable Accommodations
Components of a Good FFDE and Risk Evaluation That Will Stand Up in Court
- If the Doctor Is Associated With the Referring EAP and Employer, the Employee Could Argue That the EAP and Employer Influenced the Doctor's Findings
- If the Doctor Has (Or Will) Treat the Employee, the Doctor's Primary Allegiance Might Be With His or Her Patient – This Practice Is Now Often Considered Unethical
- Treating Doctors Frequently Do Not Have the Training to Conduct These Evaluations in a Manner Designed to Withstand the Scrutiny of Court
- Lack of Experience Evaluating the Credentials of Potential Doctors With Medical or Legal Expertise
- Thorough Social and Clinical History
- Objective Psychological Testing
- Telephone Consultations With Treatment Providers

Cannot Attend The Live Presentation?
This presentation is also available in a recorded format, in CD version, as shown in the pricing options below.
|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
