Employment & HR: Temperature checks in the workplace

Employment & HR: Temperature checks in the workplace

As organisations begin to re-open, can they demand that their employees and visitors have temperature checks before entering their premises?

What may appear as a measure organisations are taking to protect the well-being of their employees and visitors in fact opens up the potential for unwanted employee grievance claims and a whirlwind of questions around data protection and confidentiality.    And as this data is health related, it raises further restrictions and complications around what is considered lawful under the GDPR. Whilst government guidance around temperature checks may be slightly opaque, the GDPR is very clear and failure to comply can lead to fines and reputation damage.

In this live discussion, we look at:

  • GDPR – what you need to do before collecting, processing and storing special category data
  • Employer and employee rights
  • H&S and GDPR policies

We will also be taking your questions live on the day, but if you wish to send these in advance, please forward these to events@shma.co.uk.
