Survey: More Employers Expect to Impose Vaccine Mandates, Restrictions

A recent nationwide survey finds that vaccination mandates and related requirements are expected to proliferate among U.S. employers in the fourth quarter of 2021.

HR Dive reports that the poll, conducted by Willis Towers Watson, found more than half of the 961 employers surveyed could have vaccination-related requirements in their workplaces by Q4. Examples included requiring a vaccine for workers to enter common areas or requiring vaccination for a subset of employees.

A new Gallup poll, meanwhile, finds the share of Americans required by their employer to be vaccinated against COVID-19 has jumped to 19% — up from 9% in July. 9/9/2021
