Can employees be terminated for refusing to get the COVID-19 vaccine?
We answer this Employment Law question in an article we wrote for Mechanical Business Magazine. #MechBiz
“One of the most common questions in the minds of business owners across the country is whether employees can, and should, be required to provide proof of vaccination, and what recourse will employers have where an employee fails or refuses to provide this information.
Generally speaking, any policy requiring proof of vaccination from employees must take into consideration the employer’s privacy and human rights obligations under applicable legislation. For example, such policies must consider the employer’s duties when collecting and/or disclosing an employee’s private information, and the employer’s duty to accommodate its employees where there are religious exemptions or documented medical reasons preventing an employee from getting a vaccine.”
