Latin America COVID-19 Legal Landscape (UPDATED)


A. Are employer mandatory screenings and medical evaluations enforceable in

your jurisdiction?

The rule is that employers cannot require employees to submit to mandatory screenings and medical evaluations, unless the employees are asking for medical leave. However, under the current circumstances, employers may be authorized to request the employees to submit to the screenings or medical examinations related to COVID-19 to protect the health and safety of other employees. This would only be applicable to those employees who need to interact with other employees.

Please see full Publication below for more information.
