Functional Job Analysis

On September 25, 2008, the ADA Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA) was passed that significantly broadened the scope of protection available under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. The critical inquiry under this amended law is no longer on whether the individual has a disability, but whether covered entitles have engaged in an interactive process that supports reasonable accommodation of qualified disabled applicants and employees. Accurate job analyses help guard against inappropriate injury claims and prevent needless work disability.

MEASURAbilities, LLC (formerly Sandy Goldstein & Associates) Functional Job Analysis is an interactive analysis process with employee involvement that identifies functional elements and physical demands of job tasks using the WorkAbility eJobMatch web-based reporting platform. Issues that may prompt referral for this service include:

  • Design of safe and productive work methods or controls to lower injury rates
  • Validate fitness-for-duty screening methods for job-applicants and workers
  • Identify safe work tasks & accommodation options to promote return to productive work
