We hire detention personnel. Persons appointed must be free of any emotional or mental condition that might adversely affect his/her performance. We have a candidate whose psyche eval indicates: untreated depression, social isolation and low self esteem. He has done two combat tours in Iraq. The evaluator says his issues are very treatable and recommends counseling and medication. We have a vetern preference statute in our state. Can we condition employment on the counseling and medication check? Hire him on a probation basis, put him in our training program and require counseling? He is also the son of one of our retired peace officers. This feels like a really sticky situation.
