A recent Kaiser Family Foundation survey revealed that 27 percent of respondents remain “vaccine hesitant,” even if the vaccine is free and deemed safe by scientists.

As COVID-19 vaccines become increasingly available, employers will soon be facing the question of whether to require vaccination as a condition of employment.

Join VRSA staff for a discussion on the factors involved in this decision. Topics to be discussed include:

  • Recent Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) guidance on vaccine mandates;
  • Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) regulations;
  • Determining which employees are subjected to a mandate;
  • Responding to employees who refuse vaccination;
  • Whether employees can sue for failure to maintain a safe work environment if there is no mandate; and
  • The media and public relations implications of the mandate/non-mandate.
