    I have a couple more questions (my test date was moved to wed due to winter storm)

    Do they let you know at the test sight how you did, or do you have to wait for the employer to notify you?

    How do you know if the testing is being ordered to rule out employment due to disability? Because I think that may be the case here. When I mentioned that withdrawing the offer didn't seem right. He said "we haven't withdrawn it yet.."

    thanksevery one here has been soooo helpful. (just wish I would have found AN earlier!)

    You will be notified by the employer. Since it is a part of your record, you can request that a copy of the testing and results be sent to your family doctor. you will need to have a medical release paper for them to do that. I would follow up with your family doctor to see if they did recieve a copy of it. If not, give all the information i.e. date of test, dr name and address, etc.. and have them request a copy. (it took several attempts for me to get the report sent to my doctor. Not sure what the hold up was..) I wish you luck in going through everything. Hopefully things will go well for you once start work. Just remember that if they do let you go after offering you a job, follow up with what other posters have said and contact an attorney.

    Isn't that age discrimination? If the doc works for them I think that is an another problem? And what about HIPPA? Keep us posted this is an interesting situation. Fltnrse

    I'm having a little problem with my email so this may be a dup. This smacks of age discrimination to me. I would also go to my personal physician not one provided by the instituation. Have you looke into HIPPA? Let me know what happens this is a very interesting subject if your comfortable do that. You can PM me. FLTNRSE
