With COVID-19 vaccines now widely available, many employers are thinking about having their employees return to the workplace. In order to facilitate this return safely and in the interest of employee health, some employers are considering mandating or incentivizing their employees to receive the vaccines. Including questioning their employees about whether they have gotten or intent to get vaccinated and, if not, why. As employers prepare their return-to-workplace plans, it is important to understand the potential legal issues and risks associated with these vaccine-related initiatives.
During this webinar, we will discuss the various legal issues that employers should consider when planning COVID vaccine-related initiatives. Topics discussed will include:
- Federal and state employment laws
- Privacy and other legal issues associated with encouraging vaccination
- Practical tips on implementing a vaccination incentive program
