COVID-19 testing: Key HR considerations for employers

One of the most important facts about coronavirus that has emerged is that about one-third of infections are asymptomatic – so there could be people coming into your business who are infected with COVID-19 and don’t know because they have no symptoms.

Naturally, this poses a transmission risk for you and everyone in your workplace. So, increasingly employers are looking at workplace testing as a way to protect their business and their employees.

With testing being potentially the difference between a business having to close due to an outbreak or remain open, it’s understandable that many employers are implementing workplace testing, both to protect them and their employees.

But are you confident you know how to create and implement a thorough testing policy? And if you already have one, are you confident that it’s robust and legally sound?
