As we reported in the OMA’s COVID-19 Update earlier this week, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has issued new guidance covering workplace COVID-19 vaccination policies and practices. The guidance makes clear that employers may require employees who are physically present in the workplace to be vaccinated. Employees who have not been vaccinated due to a disability or sincerely held religious belief, practice, or observance must be reasonably accommodated.
OMA Connections Partner Fisher Phillips has published this analysis of the EEOC’s new guidance to help employers weigh their options when it comes to encouraging employees to get vaccinated. The firm has also published this insight to help employers manage a partially vaccinated workforce. 6/2/2021
