Course Description

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, times have been more uncertain than ever for business owners, management, and HR personnel. Now that states are beginning to re-open, employees have also begun returning to the office in larger numbers.

As the COVID-19 vaccination is being distributed across the nation, many businesses are asking whether they can or should require their workforce to get the vaccine. 

How will your workplace address the COVID-19 vaccine, and what are the legal issues involved with mandating vaccination before returning to work?

In response to such questions, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) recently issued guidance on vaccination-related issues in the workplace.  Such issues implicate the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (“Title VII”), among other laws.  Employers who are considering implementing vaccination programs should adhere to the EEOC guidance.

However, Employers should understand what the requirements are under the EEOC guidance and what factors can impact them if they are not followed. Moreover, proper communication of policies should ensure proper compliance. Employees will have many questions and the Employer needs to have the answers to ensure the employees have confidence.

Employers also have to ensure there are accommodations made for those employees who are not ready for mandatory vaccinations because of religious or disability concerns. The bottom line is that there should be some accommodations made that do not impose an undue hardship to offer those employees in these specific scenarios.

In this Business Law CPE webinar, we will discuss the COVID-19 vaccination program and the advantages and disadvantages of implementing a mandatory COVID-19 vaccine program for your employees. We will be going over the following topics:

  • COVID-19 Vaccination Overview
  • To Mandate or Recommend?
  • EEOC Guidance and Related Issues
  • Third-Party and Off-Site Workforce Issues
  • Wage and Hour Issues
  • Incentives to Vaccinate
  • Impact of the Anti-Vax Movement
  • Workplace Safety/Workers Compensation/Privacy Issues
  • Employee Relations
  • Practical Takeaways

She did a very good job of presenting the material neutrally, even though it is very clear that the anti-vaxxers are being ridiculous.
