HR Form of the Week: Fitness for Duty Certification

Each week, we will feature a different document from our forms library and provide information about where to find it, what it’s used for, and any necessary instructions. With this program, you’ll always be one step ahead of the game when it comes to finding the forms you need.

This week, the HR Form of the Week is a Fitness for Duty Certification.

For clients with access to the Forms Library, you can locate the document as follows:

Employers may use a fitness for duty certification for an employee returning from a leave of absence for several important reasons. In situations where an employee’s leave of absence was related to a disability or medical condition or injury, a fitness for duty certification helps determine if any reasonable accommodations are necessary to enable the employee to perform their job. It also helps provide an opportunity to assess whether the employee has fully recovered and can perform their job tasks effectively.

This ensures compliance with disability-related legislation, such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), helps maintain productivity and promotes inclusivity and equal opportunities for all employees.

Use this form as a template to define a job description for each position within your organization.

We hope you find this information valuable and that it helps to make your HR experience easier and more efficient.
