Teleworking and Re-Opening and Vaccines, Oh My! (03/16/2021)

Program Number: 3170 Presenter: Crystal McElrath, Esq., Nichole Novosel, Esq.

In the face of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many employers have had to consider both the business and legal implications of ceasing operations versus shifting to telework versus attempting to continue in-person work. The introduction of COVID-19 vaccines adds additional questions regarding re-opening of workplaces. This webinar will address recent executive orders, federal legislation as well as guidance from the EEOC and OSHA regarding teleworking, re-opening, and vaccination of employees. Does the Americans with Disabilities Act protect employees at risk of contracting COVID-19? When should/must employers provide teleworking options? May/should employers require employees to be vaccinated? What liability might employers face with respect to requiring and/or administering the vaccine in order to re-open?

A Shot in the Arm: The Employment and OSHA Law Implications of COVID-19 Vaccination Programs (03/15/2021)

Program Number: 3159 Presenter: Dr. Sharon Meit Abrahams, Eric J. Conn, Esq., Fern Fleisher-Daves, Esq.

In December 2020, two COVID-19 vaccines received emergency use authorization from the U.S. government and several more vaccines may be approved in the coming weeks. In the initial phases, front-line healthcare workers, nursing home residents, persons over 75 years of age, and others with underlying health conditions have been given first priority, but many employers are now devising programs to have their "essential workers" or all of their workers vaccinated as soon as possible. This discussion will address the OSHA and Labor & Employment law questions swirling around employer-driven vaccination policies and programs, including the legality of employer vaccine mandates, the grounds on which employees may decline the vaccine, and what effects the vaccine has on OSHA-required COVID-19 protocols in the workplace.
