Pursuant to the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), an employer must make a conditional job offer prior to requesting a workers' comp claim search. An employer may
not base an employment decision on the speculation that an applicant may cause increased workers' compensation costs in the future. However, an employer may refuse to
hire, or may discharge an individual who is not currently able to perform a job without posing a significant risk of substantial harm to the health or safety of the
individual or others, if the risk cannot be eliminated or reduced by reasonable accommodation. An employer may refuse to hire or may fire a person who knowingly provides
a false answer to a lawful post-offer inquiry about his/her condition or worker's compensation history.
