Fitness for Duty Guidelines

West Virginia University is committed to providing a safe workplace for all members of the University community. In order to do this, employees must be able to perform their duties in a safe, secure, productive, and effective manner, remaining able to do so throughout the entire time they are working.

There are times, however, that behaviors are observed in the workplace that call into question whether or not an employee is fit for the duties of his/her position. Employees who are not fit for duty may present a safety hazard to themselves, other employees, University property, or the public.

Because of these issues, the Division of Human Resources Employee Relations, offers this checklist to assist supervisors in addressing these situations.

Supervisors should contact Employee Relations at or 304-293-5700×5 for further guidance.
