COVID-19 Vaccine in the Workplace: Employment Law, Benefits & Well-Being
As the COVID-19 vaccine becomes a reality, employers will need to determine their workplace policies. Organizations with essential workers, or those who cannot maintain social distancing, may consider mandatory vaccination programs. Some employers may opt to encourage their employees to voluntarily receive the vaccine, while others will develop and integrate a vaccine policy into their COVID-19 health and safety programs.
Regardless of your preferred approach, as an employer, you need to understand what you can and can’t do when it comes to employment law and employee benefits regulations. Taking employee well-being best practices into consideration is also recommended before you finalize your approach.
