Who pays when all employees are required to have a negative COVID test in order to return to work?
Or if keeping a factory open requires regular testing? Or just because someone wants to know for their own peace of mind?
There is a lot of confusion surrounding who will ultimately pay for tests, but it seems the individual is likely to be responsible if tested repeatedly. Unfortunately, this simply may not be feasible for an employee just trying to return to work. If employers are serious about having their workforce back, they may need to adopt a testing strategy of their own.
