Private Covid-19 testing

In this podcast we talk briefly about the key points for companies to consider on implementing Covid-19 testing and/or temperature screening as part of their proposals for returning to work and beyond. This has been a key area of interest for many companies that we have spoken to recently and it is clear that interest in employee testing and screening will continue to grow as lockdown measures are lifted. Given the evolving Covid-19 landscape, companies should take the time to think about the legal and practical implications of Covid-19 testing in the context of their particular business.

We will discuss:

  • Government guidance on Covid-19 testing;
  • Legal/regulatory restrictions on testing and screening employees; and
  • Practical considerations on testing and screening
