The Medical Rules are established to determine employees' Fitness-for-Duty. Health and Medical Services determines "Fitness for Duty" as the medical and functional, (i.e., physical, mental, and cognitive) ability to:
- Safely perform a job, with or without reasonable accommodations, and
- Meet medical standards established by regulatory agencies in accordance with federal and state laws.
The Medical Rules apply to post-offer applicants and all employees. Application of these rules is based on regulatory requirements and safety standards established by Union Pacific.
