As an employer, you’re probably considering how best to protect your workforce from COVID-19, including whether you can encourage, or require, employees to be vaccinated. Your duties under the Health and Safety at Work Act (2015) extend to minimising the risks associated with the COVID-19 virus in your workplace. We recommend that you consider now how you will meet these obligations, as well as any potential challenges you may face from having some employees in the workplace vaccinated, and others not vaccinated. In this video, Ashley-Jayne (AJ) Lodge, Employment Law Partner at Anderson Lloyd, outlines the key points you need to consider around COVID-19 vaccinations in the workplace.
This video covers the following questions:
- Can an employer force employees to get vaccinated?
- Encouraging vaccination – can I incentivise employees to get vaccinated?
- Privacy considerations – can I ask my employees if they are vaccinated?
