Hoffman Quoted in Tech Target About Return to Work Mandatory Medical Testing in Post-COVID Era

19 May 2020 Tech Target News

Partner Carrie Hoffman was quoted in the Tech Target article, “Top 10 return-to-office guidelines HR and business leaders need now.”

Hoffman told Tech Target that human resource leaders and business leaders should familiarize themselves with guidance from sources including the EEOC on health screenings, which may become part of the return to work process. “The EEOC is greenlighting mandatory medical testing for COVID-19," she said.

However, this guidance does not speak to the issues of testing vendors, retention of testing records, records privacy or liability for incorrect results. "All such issues should be vetted with competent employment and healthcare counsel before moving forward," she said.
