Employer Vaccination Policies?

Posted August 27, 2021

CAN EMPLOYER IMPLEMENT A VACCINATION POLICY?

THE ANSWER IS YES! Many employers, contractors and developers are now implementing policies requiring employees to state whether or not they are vaccinated, some employers are requiring them to upload their vaccination card in to a company data base or provide a copy of their vaccination cards to HR department, some employers are going even further and requiring employees to be Vaccinated with this being said these policies do not fall under HIPPA rules, HIPPA only regulates Healthcare providers and Insurance Companies and not the employers, In August the Department of Labor has issued new guidance that recommends that all employers require employees to be vaccinated or to submit to weekly testing and/or to wear a mask at all time, all employees are obligated to follow their employers safety measures when working in there facilities and on a jobsite most of these policies have been directed by CAL/OSHA and are consider lawful including by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission,  the employer has the obligation to provide a safe work place for its employees, costumers and the surrounding public. Stay Safe!
