3. Health and Safety Measures

Requirements mandated by law or any official guidance.

There are no requirements mandated by law. However, the Public Health Agency of Sweden recommends that all employers take measures to limit the spread of the Coronavirus (see below for examples of such measures).

Measures typically implemented by employers and the associated legal risks, limitations, obligations and issues to consider.

Measures typically implemented by employers can be, for example, to set up information for members, staff, customers and other visitors, mark distance on the floor, furnish or otherwise create space to avoid congestion, hold digital meetings, offer the opportunity to wash hands with soap, as well avoid group gatherings, especially in confined spaces. Temperature monitoring is not a common practice in Sweden, since such data can be considered sensitive personal data. While some employers have recommended that their employees should wear face masks, compliance seems to be the exception rather than the norm.
