Up in arms
Ending the COVID-19 pandemic has required the biggest vaccination campaign in history.1 To date, a billion doses have distributed worldwide, and vaccines continue to roll out as countries aim to quell outbreaks and return to “normalcy.” But what happens when not everyone wants to be vaccinated?
Can employers require their employees to be vaccinated? What if an employee raises a religious objection or a health care concern as their reason for refusing the vaccine? What if vaccinated employees have concerns about working alongside colleagues who aren’t vaccinated? Quick Shot: Vaccination Guidance for Employers and Employees will provide rapid answers to these questions and more.
Erica N. Reib will provide an update on current guidance from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), along with a summary of the latest vaccine-related litigation. You’ll receive a quick dose of advice on issues such as:
- Whether employers can provide incentives to encourage vaccinations
- Allowing for employees’ religious objections to vaccination
- Whether mandatory or voluntary vaccination programs hinge on the type of employment
You’ll also explore what happens when the majority of the population is inoculated and how employers will need to adjust their health and safety measures accordingly.
Don’t miss your shot to get the answers to the big questions on employers’ and employees’ minds. Attend Quick Shot: Vaccination Guidance for Employers and Employees and be prepared to offer up-to-date counsel.
