Program Length: 1.5 hours

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to identify legal issues employers should consider when developing policies and practices related to the new COVID-19 vaccine during this unprecedented time with this instructive webinar.

We all remember March 11, 2020 like it was yesterday: the day in which the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 to be a global pandemic. In the days since, there have been countless questions by all of humanity, some answered, some still pending, but the biggest question that remains: when will a vaccine be available that will lead to an end of this troubling crisis? Well, the vaccine has finally arrived and along with it — even more questions.

On Monday, December 14, 2020 the first COVID-19 vaccine was administered to a nurse in New York City, that same week the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) released updated guidance outlining how the COVID-19 vaccination intersects with an employer’s responsibilities under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA).

EEO laws have continued to apply during this challenging time, but they do not and should not interfere with guidelines suggested by the CDC or state and local public health authorities regarding employer obligations or directives.

Join attorneys Jennifer Hataway and Carolyn Pellegrini as they identify legal issues employers should consider when developing policies and practices related to the COVID-19 vaccine. They’ll review EEOC guidance and relevant employment laws to answer your most pressing questions about the COVID-19 vaccine in the workplace. This webinar will help you navigate all the complexities of being a responsible employer during this unprecedented time!

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Develop and apply responsible workplace practices as they relate to the COVID-19 vaccine
  • Anticipate the unique challenges your organization could be faced with in the coming months and plan accordingly
  • Prepare and educate executives, leaders, staff, and personnel on the future of the workplace post-pandemic
  • Utilize best practices and guidelines to align your organization with state, local and federal laws
