Temperature checks at entrances, questionnaires about Covid-19 symptoms and required coronavirus tests for employees returning to work — it’s all part of the increasingly common measures employers are now putting in place to guard against a second wave of the pandemic.
If it feels a bit strange to have your temperature taken every time you enter your workplace, that’s because health has long been a taboo subject in most workplaces. Part of this is by law. The Americans With Disabilities Act prohibits employers from asking about employee health or undergoing a medical test unless it’s related to the job and consistent with business necessity. Health is treated as a matter of personal privacy.
Under the new guidelines, legal experts say employers are now allowed to take two actions to protect their workforces: temperature screening and checking for symptoms of the coronavirus. Employers can also exclude workers they suspect have symptoms from the workplace.
Control of the epidemic requires action at the individual, community, and population levels!
