Tip of the week: Verify physical "must haves" for a job are REALLY must haves

REASON: It’s not uncommon to have physical requirements for a job, and many are valid. However, before requiring physical abilities, make sure they are truly necessary. For example, hiring a sales rep that will work at conference booths, MUST they be able to “stand up for up to eight hours” or can someone in a wheelchair do the job? What about a technician with heavy equipment, MUST they “be able to carry 30 lb.” or is it possible to have a cart to move the heavy equipment? For any physical requirement, have a clear reason why there is no alternative, otherwise you may be needlessly discriminating against certain applicants.
