The introduction of the COVID-19 vaccine brings about various legal and practical considerations for employers and employees. This webinar will explore, amongst others, mandatory vaccination policies, and the balance between an individual choice to be vaccinated and an employer’s duty to ensure adequate workplace health and safety.
This webinar will aid both employers and employees in navigating the implementation of the COVID-19 vaccination.
