POET, also known as Post Offer Employment Testing, is used to ensure that an applicant is physically able to complete the physically demanding job in New Jersey or New York that they are applying for. This is to assure employers that there is a minimal risk of injury when it comes to their physically demanding job.

Goal of Post Offer Employment Testing
The end goal of every POET is to assure employers that the individual is physically capable of performing every function required by their potential job. 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 with everyone.
Reasons for Post Offer Employment Testing
When an employer makes a potential hire go through Post Offer Employment Testing, there are a few different needs for it. The first of these reasons is compliance with all federal legislation. Next, the goal of any company, especially physically demanding jobs, is to hire healthy and productive workers. You also want to make sure that workers are put into jobs that they are capable of not only performing, but also succeeding. Lastly, and most importantly, you want to prevent or at least reduce all work related injuries, which therefore reduce and prevent all related costs.
