AGC Lunch & Learn: What Contractors Need to Know about Employee Vaccination Requirements
For months, COVID-19 vaccines have been a scarce commodity – with demand for the vaccine far exceeding the available supply. However, as the vaccine rollout continues and eligibility for a vaccine continues to expand, employers are beginning to wonder: can an employee be required to receive a vaccination against COVID-19 as a condition of employment? Should they be? These questions are especially pressing in Alaska’s construction industry where projects require employees to be present on-site during the short construction season. Join Attorneys Amy Robinson (Miller Nash Graham & Dunn) and Wiley Cason (Oles Morrison Rinker & Baker) as they lead a practical discussion of this fast-moving issue and highlight some key considerations for employers as they contemplate whether and how to address vaccination in their plans for the coming season.
