What Employers Need To Know About COVID-19 Vaccines
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, employers’ mandatory vaccination policies may soon become more important than ever. As employers seek to balance their duty to maintain a workplace free of recognized dangers and the rights of individual employees, questions abound: Can you enforce mandatory vaccination policies? If you mandate COVID-19 vaccinations, what specific risks and responsibilities must you consider and address? Is a mandatory vaccination policy the right option for your company?
Regardless of your intended approach to the COVID-19 vaccine, this webinar will equip you with the relevant legal considerations, and the implications it will have on workplace operations and employers. We look forward to having you join us for this informative and engaging program with Mr. Michael D. Carrouth, of Fisher and Phillips LLP.
