As the COVID-19 vaccine becomes a reality, employers will need to determine their workplace policies. Organizations with essential workers or those who cannot maintain social distancing may consider mandatory vaccination programs. Some employers may opt to encourage their employees to voluntarily receive the vaccine while others will develop and integrate a vaccine policy into their COVID-19 health and safety programs.

Regardless of your preferred approach, as an employer, you need to understand what you can and can’t do when it comes to employment law and employee benefits regulations. Taking employee well-being best practices into consideration is also recommended before you finalize your approach.

In this program, experts from HUB International will answer important questions including:

  • Can employers require their employees to get vaccinated?
  • If vaccines are required, what are the options for administering them?
  • Will the cost be covered under health benefits?
  • How does the COVID vaccine fit into my corporate wellness strategy?
