Date & Time

Start Date: 02/11/2021
Start Time: 1:00 pm
End Time: 2:00 pm EST


The COVID-19 vaccine is finally rolling out across the country, and employers are facing critical questions about the policies that should be implemented or modified in response to the changing environment. Although the question of “mandate or no mandate” is a significant policy decision, there are other equally complicated policy implications related to the availability of the vaccine. This webinar will cover the following topics:

  • The legal and practical risks associated with mandating employee vaccination and what should be included in such a policy
  • Analysis of the EEOC’s guidelines on the application of federal employment laws to vaccination policies
  • Practical guide to address employee reasonable accommodation requests based on medical or religious objections to vaccines
  • Best practices for incentive programs as an alternative to mandatory policies, and resources available to navigate the different state phases
  • Impact of vaccine availability on continued accommodation requests from employees seeking to work from home
