The Americans with Disabilities Act applies a traffic-light approach to employer-mandated medical exams.
The [ADA’s] regulation refers to “[m]edical examinations” in the plural. More saliently, McDonald cites no authority interpreting the ADA to prohibit more than one pre-employment medical examination.
