COVID Vaccines for Restaurant Workers—What Employers Need to Know
Free Webinar: What Restaurants Need to Know About Vaccinating Their Workforce
Thursday, February 11 at 3:00 PM EST
The Restaurant Law Center (RLC) is hosting a free webinar on “Taking a Shot at COVID-19: What Restaurants Need to Know About Vaccinating Their Workforce.” The webinar will explore legal and practical issues for the restaurant industry ranging from mandatory vaccinations and reasonable accommodations to workers’ compensation implications and policies that restaurants should implement.
Guidance for Restaurants: Legal Issues to Consider Regarding COVID-19 Mandatory Vaccine Policies
The Restaurant Law Center (RLC) released its “Guidance for Restaurants: Legal Issues to Consider Regarding COVID-19 Mandatory Vaccine Policies.” As a best practice, restaurants should encourage all employees to get the COVID-19 vaccine when it becomes available. However, some restaurants are considering going further by mandating it for certain employees. This new Guidance addresses legal questions raised by those wanting to go the extra step by mandating the COVID-19 vaccine as a condition of employment. Information will complement the RLC webinar on February 11th.
