Title: Vaccine Nation: Return to Work and Employer Obligations
Summary: As COVID-19 vaccines become more widely available, employers must be educated on how to re-open safely while also protecting everyone’s rights. Employers must consider whether they can require employees to be vaccinated, and whether they should require employees to be vaccinated. These decisions are based on a cross-section of laws addressing disability discrimination, medical leave, and workplace safety.
