Where do we go from here? Navigating Vaccines and Mask Mandates in the Workplace


With the COVID-19 vaccination readily available, and some hesitant to get vaccinated, employers are faced with new questions.  Should they require employees to get vaccinated in order to return to in-person work?  What legal risks are at stake if they do so? Perhaps more importantly, how will requiring, or not requiring, a vaccine affect employee attraction, engagement, and retention. Join us as we talk with Jennifer Mirus of Boardman & Clark about the role COVID-19 vaccinations are taking in the workplace.
