Abstract: The presented paper deals with labour law aspects of the area-wide testing for the COVID-19 disease in the Slovak Republic, from the point of view of persons who performed work as members of the testing team. Although the issue of testing can also be viewed from the perspective of an employee who (did not) participate in the testing, it would already be spent on a separate paper. The author concludes that without violating and circumventing the labour law provisions, respectively in compliance with the agreed arrangements, it was not possible to perform the activity of a member of the testing team. During the testing, the shortcomings of the legal regulation of casual work in the Slovak Republic became apparent, to which it is necessary to respond by regulating casual work, which will provide the right balance of flexibility and social protection.
