What is a pre-employment assessment?
A pre-employment assessment is a process that employers can use to assess the suitability of job candidates.
There are two types of pre-employment assessments you can use to ensure that job candidates are able to safely undertake the role for which they are applying:
- pre-employment medical assessments; and
- pre-employment questionnaires.
