Mandating COVID-19 vaccinations in the workplace
Following our recent newsletter Can an employer mandate COVID-19 vaccinations for its employees?, today we discuss this further with consideration of whether this would be a lawful and reasonable direction, discriminatory, or necessary to meet duty of care obligations. We also give our take on "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" of employment law, and review "On the Basis of Sex", the story of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, to balance last month's viewing.
