What employers need to know about the Corona Warning App

What do employers have to consider from an employment law perspective when using the “Corona-Warn-App”?

The Corona Warning App has been in use since mid-June: the widespread use of the app is supposed to track as many chains of infection as possible, thus preventing the corona virus from spreading and avoiding a further shutdown.

The benefits of the app, the costs associated with its development and operation, as well as data protection and voluntary vs. mandatory use are the subject of lively discussion.

In our GSK Update, we answer the most important questions that arise in connection with the app from the employer’s point of view.
