EEOC Now Allows Employee COVID-19 Testing
As cases of new coronavirus infections begin to plateau and businesses begin to reopen, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has allowed employers to test returning employees for COVID-19. This is to ensure the safety of everyone, from coworkers to customers and the employees themselves.
Testing must follow the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements, which state mandatory medical tests must be “job-related and consistent with business necessity.” The EEOC also made it clear that employers must continue to adhere to civil rights protections under the law.
