Employers Considering Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccine Programs, We Have a FREE Webinar For You

The other day, we told you that – holy cow! – the FDA approved the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for folks 16 and up—it’s no longer for emergency use only.

Anticipating a spike in employers mandating workplace COVID-19 vaccines, we discussed an employer’s top concerns and considerations. If you missed it, you can read it here.

Late last month, my FisherBroyles employment partner Eric Meyer took a poll, asking, “Will your business mandate COVID-19 vaccinations for employees?” Here’s how readers responded:

  • 6.7% – We already do
  • 14% – We’re either planning on it soon or strongly considering it
  • 2.7% – Once the FDA approves the vaccine
  • 9.4% – I don’t know
  • 38.8% – Probably not
  • 28.4% – Never

Then, the other day, Eric took another poll, asking the same question. Here’s how people answered:

  • 11.7% – We already do
  • 15.4% – We probably will soon.
  • 11.3% – I don’t know
  • 41% – Probably not
  • 20.7% – Never

Confused? (Yeah, I’m not a math person either.)

Don’t know what to do? (It’s a lot.)

Want to hear solutions to common concerns?

We got you.

Join my partners and me on September 1, 2021, at Noon EDT, for an hour on “Everything HR Ever Wanted to Know about Mandating COVID-19 Vaccinations in the Workplace.” Eric, David Renner, Sid Steinberg, and I will discuss everything from accommodations (including what to do about those bogus religious ones) to booster shots to privacy concerns to PTO policies and whatever else is on your mind about mandatory vaccinations. So grab your popcorn, grab your chocolate, and buckle up—we’ll talk about ALL the things.
