Legal Considerations and Strategies for Employers Related to the COVID Vaccines
With wayne young


We will review the various legal and practical issues raised for employers in light of the Covid vaccine rollout in Arkansas.  The presentation will cover the legal issues employers should keep in mind when developing a vaccine strategy or policy as well as ideas for how to approach the issue of the vaccine with staff.  We will cover the ADA, Title VII and Arkansas Civil Rights Act questions that are raised by implementing a Covid vaccine policy and provide tips on how to navigate those compliance issues.  We will discuss what employers should consider in implementing a vaccine incentive program of any kind.  As these issues are evolving, we anticipate there will be new issues that come to light between the writing of this summary and the presentation itself, and we will explore those as well as hopefully have an engaging Q &A via the chat.
