COVID-19 Vaccination: A Littler Global Guide on Legal & Practical Implications in the Workplace

COVID-19 Vaccination: A Littler Global Guide on Legal & Practical Implications in the Workplace

The rollout of the COVID-19 vaccines represent the beginning of the end of a terrible pandemic and the “light at the end of the tunnel” to return to some semblance of a pre-COVID workplace. As governments around the world are developing or implementing ambitious plans to vaccinate millions of their citizenry, employers are left to ascertain their response, in light of their duties to protect workers’ health and safety and the need to resume normal operations.

Littler’s global team is pleased to provide you with the “COVID-19 Vaccination” report, a global guide on the legal and practical implications of the COVID-19 vaccine in the workplace.

Covering over 45 jurisdictions, this guide addresses various topics, including:

  • Can an employer require employees or applicants to be vaccinated?
  • Is there legal protection to be excused from being vaccinated (e.g., religious accommodation/disability accommodation)?
  • Are employees entitled to reimbursement for the cost of the vaccination?
  • What are the privacy implications?
  • Can employers unilaterally mandate employee vaccinations in a collective representation setting?
  • Related topics within the context of employee benefits, teleworking, etc.
