Another goal of this testing system is to combat employers making employment decisions based on stereotypes and medical conditions. With POET, it doesn’t matter what age, gender and/or how healthy you appear, but about whether you can physically perform the job or not. Post Offer Employment Testing must be valid, job related and consistent with business necessity for everyone.
