What employers need to know about mandatory vaccinations

Across all industries and sectors, organisations are constantly adapting to ever-changing restrictions and health orders, including COVID-19 testing and vaccinations. But can employers require their employees be vaccinated beyond what the government mandates? The answer is, it depends.

Join us for a presentation, where we delved into:

  • employer obligations arising from the public health orders across industries and areas of concern;
  • navigating Fair Work Ombudsman guidance material and laws regarding lawful and reasonable directions;
  • managing employee concerns and non-compliance;
  • consultation and other obligations in awards and enterprise agreements; and
  • discrimination and privacy considerations.
