As COVID-19 restrictions are being lifted and more and more people are returning to work, restaurants, and life pre-pandemic, we have a new set of questions to deal with. Can employers require employees to get vaccines? Is it discriminatory to treat vaccinated and non-vaccinated employees differently? This webinar will answer questions about these issues and more!

About the Program:

This program will cover implementation of COVID-19 laws in the workplace, including:

  • Whether employers may mandate vaccines as conditions of employment
  • Guidance and intersection with anti-discrimination laws
  • Disability, retaliation and harassment issues
  • Disability and accommodation
  • Sick leave due to COVID-19 and variants
  • Working remotely
  • Health and safety in the workplace
