Your compliance guide to the unique workplace issues raised by COVID vaccines and face masks

This summer, employers are facing a pair of confusing and legally dangerous issues—how to navigate the unprecedented questions of COVID vaccines and face masks.

Do employees have to disclose vaccinations? Can you (and should you) mandate or incentivize the shots for employees or customers? Can you (should you) still require masks? How do you sort through the often-conflicting CDC, EEOC, DOL and state/local guidelines?

One wrong answer can trigger big legal trouble, an employee-relations nightmare or both. On July 7, make sure your organization protects itself from these evolving risks and understands all the 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 mistakes made by other employers.
