The COVID Vaccine: Legal & Practical Solutions for Employers and HR

In this timely 75-minute online training, you will learn:

  • Solve the legal do’s and don’ts.

    Learn your compliance obligations related to time off for vaccinations, mandates, policies, privacy and more.

  • Understand incentives and accommodations.

    What can you offer to encourage the shots (new EEOC rules)? And when must you accommodate workers who refuse vaccines?

  • Follow the best practices.

    Discover what other employers are doing to avoid legal trouble and keep up employee morale.

Your guide to the unprecedented workplace issues raised by the COVID vaccine

As COVID vaccines become more available, employers are being forced to navigate unprecedented new questions with their workforce. Can you mandate or incentivize vaccinations (and should you)? Can refusal to vaccinate be a disciplinary offense? Must you offer leave or pay for vaccinations? Do employees have to disclose their vaccinations? What do the new EEOC and DOL rules say? One wrong answer can trigger big legal trouble, an employee-relations nightmare or both.

On April 27, make sure your organization protects itself from these evolving risks and understands all the vaccine best practices being used today by U.S. employers. You’ll get trusted answers to the most pressing questions employers are asking, plus guidance based on the lessons learned from the initial wave of vaccinations.
