Giving it Your Best Shot: An Employer’s Guide to COVID-19 Vaccination

On Demand | CEU Approved

  • 90 minutes

During this webinar, we will cover employer considerations regarding drafting and implementation of vaccination policies, how employers who decide to implement vaccination mandates should handle employee requests for exemptions, Equal Employment Opportunity guidance, the ADA, the Civil Rights Act, and the Pregnancy Discrimination Act and the various health plan, HIPAA, and other confidentiality issues that come into play with COVID-19 cases and related vaccines. The discussion will also include best practices for employers considering the distribution of the vaccine directly (or through a third party) and/or requiring proof of vaccination to return to work—and more!.

Session Highlights:

  • Is this an employer’s responsibility or is it the responsibility of individual employees who wish to receive the COVID-19 vaccine? 

  • Can we require our employees to be vaccinated? And can employees be terminated for refusing the vaccination? 

  • What are the already-existing legal and regulatory limitations for EEOC, OSHA, and HIPAA that we can consider now? 

  • Does the vaccine mean that we no longer need to enforce masks and social distancing in the workplace?
