Speaker, New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education Webcast, "Déjà vu All Over Again? Labor and Employment Issues in a Time of Vaccines and Variants"


January 25, 2022 | 9:00 AM - January 25, 2022 | 11:00 AM EST

The Biden administration recently announced the details of two policies to fight COVID-19. The first policy is that workers employed by a company with 100 or more employees must either be fully vaccinated or test for COVID-19 on at least a weekly basis. Second, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) at the Department of Health and Human Services announced the details of its requirement that health care workers at facilities participating in Medicare and Medicaid be fully vaccinated. These requirements add to the previously existing requirement imposed on federal contractors and federal employees of a true vaccine mandate, where no testing option is available.

As the law and practical situations faced by employers’ progress with the rollout of boosters and, possibly, a COVID pill, companies must continue to examine what the mandates and a partially vaccinated workforce and population will mean for them. Even though the pandemic is almost two years old, a clear and informed perspective on what the future may look like becomes more of a business need with every passing day.

Join us for a program that will answer some of your most pressing questions about vaccines, mandates, COVID testing for employees and exemptions. The speakers will discuss how to handle some of the most vexing questions, including how to handle vaccine issues in the public and private sector, what qualifies as a religious exemption, what qualifies as a disability exemption, evolving return to work protocols, questions as to whether you must pay for time off for testing and vaccinations, and more.

Don’t miss this informative and timely information that you can immediately put to use.
