Summarization of EEOC Vaccine Guidelines

December 16th - The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has addressed the most common employer questions regarding the COVID-19 vaccine. As of now, there are currently no state or federal laws that prohibit employers from requiring vaccinations as a condition of employment, however, employees can refuse to get the vaccine if they have certain medical conditions, challenge the mandate based on sincerely-held religious beliefs, or for disability-related reasons. If this occurs, the EEOC says that the employee cannot be excluded from the workplace, unless the employer can establish the unvaccinated employee poses a direct threat to themselves or others that cannot be eliminated by providing the employee a reasonable accommodation.

 

For more information on these new guidelines, and for answers to some common vaccine-related questions, we recommend referring to this blog post: https://www.saul.com/blogs/wise-workplace-initiatives-and-strategies-employers/frequently-asked-questions-workplace
