The ADA law was passed in 1992. The law is interpreted as follows:
"An employer may not ask or require a job applicant to take a medical examination before a job offer...After a person starts work, a medical exmination or inquiry of an employee must be job-related and consistent with business necessity. Employees may conduct employee medical examinations where there is evidence of a job performance or safety problem"
A statute of limitations may exist but that I am not certain of. When filing with the EEOC - the limit is 300 days from the last occurrence.
