The COVID Vaccine at Work: The Bottom Line

Printer-friendly version

Speaker:John J. Sarno

On July 6, 2021, the U.S. Department of Justice published a Memorandum Opinion stating mandatory workplace vaccine policies are permissible under federal law. But even as employers nationwide begin implementing mandatory COVID-19 vaccine requirements in the workplace, smaller employers are apprehensive about frivolous lawsuits.

Should employers require a COVID-19 vaccine as a condition of employment?

Forty percent of small U.S. firms report a “significant” or “moderate” staffing shortage, according to a survey released in July by the National Federation of Independent Businesses.  With enhanced unemployment ending in September, employers are free to expand onsite work.  But intensified health fears remain a problem as almost half of Americans are not fully vaccinated.  Thus, the choice whether to require the vaccine is a choice about the bottom line.
