Home / News and Insights / News / Webinar round up: COVID-19 vaccines – What do they mean for employers?

Following the chaos and disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, recent developments with the vaccine provide hope of returning to some form of normality soon.

The availability of a vaccine raises a number of important and potentially complex workplace issues for employers.

Our webinar on 14 January reviewed key questions questions which included:

  • Can employers require employees to be vaccinated?
  • Can an employee’s refusal be a disciplinary offence?
  • Do employees have to disclose if they’ve been vaccinated?
  • Can vaccinations be taken into account when considering sick pay?
  • What discrimination risks could vaccinations pose?
  • Can employers require employees to return to the office once they are vaccinated?
  • Can employers buy the vaccine and give it to their employees?

The full webinar is now available on our YouTube channel:
