EDINA, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--R3 Continuum (R3) announced today the release of their newly enhanced fitness for duty evaluation (FFD), the fitness for duty with violence screen (FFD-VS).
The purpose of an FFD is to determine whether an employee can perform essential job functions, triggered by the employer having a performance concern which might be linked to a medical condition, and the employer would like to determine their ability to work safely. The new FFD-VS adds a screening for potential violence risk issues. This screening should be performed when questions about an employee’s ability to perform their job involve concerns about anger, hostility, or threats.
The new FFD-VS service involves many of the same components, such as face-to-face interviews, psychological testing, review of diagnosis and treatment, and collateral contact. These components are expanded to focus on the potential for violence.
“The current state of the world requires that we provide not only for the safety of employees on return to work, but also of their colleagues,” notes Dr. George Vergolias, Associate Medical Director. “This assessment helps employers provide that additional level of safety.”
R3 has over 200 FFD providers nationwide across a spectrum of mental health professions, and their credentialing and clinical quality processes ensure the highest standards of evaluation.
More information about this type of assessment will be offered in two 90-minute webinar sessions. These sessions will be held on October 20, and November 17. For information and registration for these sessions, please contact R3 using the contact page on their website at https://r3continuum.com/contact-us/.
