COVID-19 Vaccine – Legal and Practical Implications
June 8, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm
As COVID-19 vaccines become widely available and business operating restrictions lift – what do you need to know as an employer? Join Joe Lazazzero, Associate at Littler Mendelson, PC for an overview on the legal and practical considerations to be aware of when re-opening your workplace and implementing an employee vaccine program.
We’ll start with a quick update on Governor Baker’s lifting of COVID-19 restrictions and outline the legal issues that need to be addressed in any vaccination program developed by employers. Can you still require masks in your workplace? Can you mandate that your employees get the vaccine? How do you handle requests to be excused from a vaccination program? The presentation will discuss the implications under state and federal law, including HIPPA, Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act, as well as wage and hour considerations.
