Legal Considerations for Your Workplace Vaccination Policy PULSE, a Paychex HR Podcast

    • Management

According to a recent Paychex survey, 79% of businesses* plan to motivate employees to get vaccinated. However, many are still wondering how to determine the role their company should play, especially given the legal complexities around vaccination policies. To help you navigate these challenges, Sheri Giger, a principal in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, office of Jackson Lewis P.C., joins host Rob Parsons to discuss the different approaches you can take when implementing a vaccination policy, how these different approaches may expose you to different levels of risk, and how new government regulations (at the Federal, state, and local levels) and emerging case laws are continuing to change the playing field.
