Vaccinations in the Workplace: Workplace & Employment Considerations

Recorded Webinar – Vaccinations in the Workplace: Workplace & Employment Considerations – Labour, Employment, and Privacy Law.

As COVID-19 vaccines are beginning to be rolled out across the country, a panel of lawyers from TDS’ labour & employment practice group hosted a free webinar to discuss the developing legal considerations and potential implications in the workplace.

Topics included: what are the rights and obligations of employers with regard to vaccination policies, what should employers consider prior to implementing a policy for testing or vaccination, can I offer incentives to my employees so that they are vaccinated before coming back to the office?

Right now, there are more questions than answers.
