The COVID-19 Vaccine - What Can Employers Require? - McDermott

Return to Work Webinar Series For Employers: The COVID-19 Vaccine – What Can Employers Require?


The COVID-19 pandemic has put unprecedented strain on organizations of all sizes across all industries. The uncertainty of the “new normal” is forcing employers all over the world to consider various new policies as workers return to the workplace. To properly navigate the complexities of these novel COVID-19 employment issues, you need innovative but practical solutions.

With the COVID-19 vaccination process underway, employers are navigating unprecedented issues within their workforce. This webinar will explore the most pressing questions employers are asking—including whether employers can (and should) mandate the vaccine—as well as other novel workplace challenges stemming from the rollout of the vaccine.

Discussion topics include:

  • Can/should employers mandate the COVID-19 vaccine with their workforce?
  • Legal implications with mandatory vs. voluntary vaccine policies.
  • Reasonable accommodation considerations arising out of a mandatory COVID-19 vaccine policy.
  • Providing the vaccine to employees – have you created an ERISA plan?

We will also conduct a Q&A session with the speakers at the end of the webinar. Please submit your questions in advance during registration.

Minimum continuing legal education (MCLE) credit is pending in California, Illinois and New York. A Multi-Jurisdiction Certificate of Attendance will be made available to participants requesting MCLE credit in all other jurisdictions. To be eligible to earn a CLE certificate, you must attend the entire webinar. Credit for partial attendance will not be provided.
