New Video: Can Businesses Require Employees Get COVID Vaccine?
Head on over to our YouTube channel for the latest video chronicling the updates in the saga of the COVID reopening.
In this video, attorney Ryan Reiffert discusses the latest guidance provided from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) on whether businesses can require that their employees be vaccinated. As a “spoiler alert” the answer is, for the most part, yes.
If you work in a business that has a significant contact to the medical, biotech, hospital, elder care, or similar market segments, this probably will not come as too much of a surprise to you – employers in those industries have been requiring their employees to get Influenza vaccines for years. And the good news for those folks is that the rules of the COVID vaccine are actually very similar. So, if you’re in an industry that has required Flu vaccines before, this is probably old hat for you.
For everyone else, take a look at the video for a more detailed explanation, and feel free to chime in if you have any questions or comments!
