Whether mandated by state law, customer requirement, or employer choice, vaccine policies are a colossal issue facing employers, and often one of the thorniest workplace issues. Yet lawful, strategic approaches exist.

DWT partners Jeff Bosley, Julie Capell, Christie Totten, and Katharine Tylee Herz, as well as DWT counsel Michael Goettig, discussed and offered practical tips on navigating issues including:

  • Deciding whether and how to mandate vaccines (including a brief discussion of privacy issues)
  • Understanding and addressing inconsistent multi-state obligations
  • Considering staffing shortages and workplace morale
  • Reviewing and negotiating customer requirements
  • Handling accommodation requests and managing them once in place
