Roetzel HealthLaw HotSpot: COVID-19 Vaccine Challenges in the Workplace


Roetzel HealthLaw HotSpot® is a podcast and YouTube channel for physicians and health professionals that covers the legal issues and trends that affect the health care industry. In this episode, Roetzel attorney Ericka Adler is joined by Aretta Bernard, Roetzel attorney and employment litigation subgroup leader, and Dr. Kevin Trangle, physician, medical director, professor and consultant, to discuss the COVID-19 vaccine issues challenging employers today. These issues include whether or not employers could and/or should mandate the vaccine for employees and, if mandated, what to do if employees refuse to be vaccinated. They explore the legal implications and pitfalls to mandating vaccinations and setting return-to-work protocols depending on the size and type of employer and roles of employees, including possible ADA, GINA, Title VII and collective bargaining issues.
