COVID-19 VACCINE WEBINAR: Understanding Vaccines and Implications in Employment Law

From 01/05/2021 12:00 pm until 01/05/2021 1:30 pm

At Omaha, NE

Vaccines for COVID-19 are now being released for use with healthcare workers and portions of the public who are high risk.  Soon, vaccines will become available to more of the public, including more and more of the U.S. workforce.  With the vaccine comes a number of issues and challenges related to employment law, and employers will have to make several decisions in their vaccine strategy. 

In addition to the vaccine, Congress is exploring several additional COVID-19 relief provisions which impact employers.

This webinar session will provide the most recent information regarding COVID-19 issues which impact employers, focused primarily on issues around vaccination and any new legislation.  Topics to be discussed include implications related to the American’s with Disabilities Act, Title VII, National Labor Relations Act, incentives, penalties, and employer policy considerations. 

PLEASE NOTE: After you have registered using the form below, you will receive a reminder email with the link to access the webinar on Monday, January 4, 2021, and another on the morning of Tuesday, January 5, 2021.
