Preemployment psychological screenings of applicants in high-risk occupations, and fitness-for-duty evaluations of incumbents in high-risk positions, comprise a category of clinical forensic evaluations with an established foundation of practice standards, laws, and regulations that the forensic practitioner must know to practice effectively in this area. In this chapter, the authors review common ethical issues that emerge in conducting high-risk occupational assessments generally, and discuss legal and practice implications for preemployment psychological screening and fitness-for-duty evaluations specifically.
