As an employer, you are responsible for the health and safety of your employees, and any customers visiting your premises.
Given the COVID-19 pandemic, you may believe your employees should be vaccinated. However, there is no simple ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer as to whether you can compel employees to have the vaccine.
To help you understand your rights and responsibilities, LegalVision is holding a free webinar on COVID-19 Vaccines In The Workplace. On Thursday, 10 February at 11am AEDT, Joel Hayden (Practice Leader) and Dickson Wu (Lawyer) will discuss:
Can employers require employees to be vaccinated?
When is it reasonable for vaccination to be required?
Can my employee sue me if I require them to be vaccinated?
Can I require evidence of vaccination from my employees?
What alternative options to a vaccine directive are available?
Following the webinar, there will be a live Q&A. If you are unable to make it, you can still register and we will send you a copy of the recording.
