Webinar #17: Legal Issues Concerning COVID-19 Employee Screening – Brad Hammock

May 28, 2020
Returning to work during the COVID-19 pandemic will require many employers to screen their workers regularly, including taking body temperatures.

Returning to work during the COVID-19 pandemic will require many employers to screen their workers regularly, including taking body temperatures. Ideally, all employers would hire 3rd party companies to perform the screening. However, there will not be enough qualified 3rd party companies to go around. Since body temperature screening involves complicated legal issues the screenings must be performed consistently, professionally, and with proper training for those performing the screening. Long-time MCAA friend and attorney, Brad Hammock, from Littler law firm walks employers through the legal traps and make recommendations for properly navigating employee COVID-19 screenings.
