About the Program

With the COVID-19 Delta variant on the rise and the FDA’s recent approval of the Pfizer vaccine, employers are once again reviewing their policies and considering making vaccines mandatory in the workplace. This webinar will provide you with a better understanding of the legal and practical considerations of mandatory vaccine policies and address frequently asked questions related to employee requests for accommodations. We will also cover recent executive orders and OSHA’s Emergency Temporary Standard. While the content will focus mainly on the applicable requirements in the private sector, those in the public sector will also find many of the principles useful in analyzing similar issues.

  • Legal and practical considerations of instituting a mandatory vaccine policy 
  • About workplace surveys and record keeping for employee vaccination status 
  • About responding to requests for accommodations, engaging in the interactive process, and undue hardship
