COVID-19 Employee Screening App
Included in all subscription plans and built into the timesheet app, the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Self-Screening app option can be enabled in the Employee Punch Settings. The app requires employees to affirmatively answer the default or custom screening questions in order to punch into a shift. If they fail the self-screen they cannot punch in and an alert is sent to their manager. The time and place of the failure are also recorded so employers can perform contact tracing and alert other employees who were in close contact with the employee. As your employees return to work, your business needs to have a game plan on how you will protect your employees and customers at the Jobsite. Many States are mandating screening for certain workplaces and have zero tolerance for sick workers reporting to work. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has issued new guidance for employers so they can legally screen employees regarding COVID-19 symptoms.
Protect your company from potential liability issues arising from the coronavirus by maintaining records that your employees self screened for COVID-19 before each shift. These records are easily retrieved in the Timesheet Reports COVID Screen tab.
