[Webinar] What Employers Need to Know About COVID-19 Vaccines

On Thursday, February 11th from 1:00 PM – 2:15 P.M. EST, join Kara M. Maciel, Fern Fleischer-Daves and Lindsay A. DiSalvo for a webinar regarding What Employers Need to Know About COVID-19 Vaccine.Capture

In December 2020, two COVID-19 vaccines received emergency use authorization from the US government and several more vaccines may be approved in the coming months. In the initial phases, front-line health care workers, nursing home residents, persons over 75 years of age, and others with underlying health conditions were given first priority. Many employers want to have their “essential workers” or all of their workers vaccinated as soon as possible.

During this webinar, Conn Maciel Carey’s OSHA and Labor & Employment attorneys will discuss these important questions:

  • Who decides prioritization while vaccine supplies are limited?
  • May an employer mandate that some or all of their employees be vaccinated?
  • Should companies require contractors, temporary employees and vendors be vaccinated?
  • May a worker refuse to be vaccinated for medical, religious or ethical reasons?
  • How do we handle an employee who insists on working remotely indefinitely?
  • When all our workers are vaccinated, must everyone continue social distancing and wearing masks in the workplace?
