After satisfactory reference checks, to help ensure that staff members are able to perform the essential functions of their proposed job, and to perform these duties safely, physical examinations and drug testing may be required. Hiring supervisors should check with Human Resources to determine or confirm which positions require these types of exams.
After a conditional offer of employment has been made to an applicant entering certain designated job categories, these examinations and screenings will be performed at Drury University's expense by a health professional of the University’s choice. The offer of employment and assignment to duties is contingent upon satisfactory completion of the exam(s), which will measure the staff member's ability to perform the essential functions of the job. Job applicants may be asked to provide body substance samples (such as urine and/or blood). Information on a staff member's medical condition or history will be kept separate from other staff member information and maintained confidentially. Access to this information will be limited to those who have a legitimate need to know.
Once results of the exam and screenings have been received, HR department staff will notify the hiring supervisor whether or not they may proceed with the hiring process and establish a start date for the new staff member.
