The Legal Implications of thermal temperature screening technology in the wake of Covid-19

The impact of Covid-19 across the globe has been extreme and far reaching, and the affects thereof are likely to be felt for some time. As the world grapples with the question of how to return to a ‘new normality’, businesses are now looking to the use of technology to assist them with the transition from a wide spread lockdown to finding their feet once again, safely.

One form of technology being considered is ‘fever screening’ technology, which has the potential to be a General Data Protection Regulation and Privacy minefield for both employers and employees and any customers who may be screened.

Equipment that stores, records and processes data is likely to require careful consideration which we explore in more detail within this Briefing Note: “The Legal Implications of thermal temperature screening technology in the wake of Covid-19“.
