April 15, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:15 pm

Now that COVID-19 vaccines are more widely available throughout the nation, employers must be prepared to navigate the constantly evolving legal landscape and unique employee relations issues tied to vaccination programs in the employment setting. The important topics covered during this webinar include:

  • The results of the ABC National survey regarding employers’ key concerns, plans and strategies related to COVID-19 vaccination
  • An overview of the legal issues that need to be addressed in any vaccination program developed by employers
  • Requests to be excused from vaccination programs based on (1) religious beliefs, practices or observances under Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act or (2) medical conditions and/or disabilities covered under the Americans with Disabilities Act
  • Benefits-related issues, including encouraging vaccinations as part of an employer’s wellness program • Wage and hour issues, such as vaccine costs, compensable time and the treatment of monetary incentives
  • Employee safety, workers’ compensation and privacy-related issues
  • Implementation of vaccination programs in a unionized setting, as well as the potential impact of the anti-vaccination movement and any “concerted protected activity”
