Event Description

What Nonprofit Employers need to know about COVID-19 Vaccination requirements

Amy Robinson, Partner, Miller Nash Graham & Dunn LLP
Ivan Resendiz-Gutierrez, Appellate and Litigation Attorney, Miller Nash Graham & Dunn LLP

As vaccines for COVID-19 are being rolled out, everyone seems to be asking the same question: can employers require their employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19 as a condition of employment? Given a myriad of unknowns and competing considerations at play, the better question may be should they do so? Join Miller Nash Graham & Dunn attorneys Amy Robinson and Iván Resendiz Gutierrez 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 return to work planning, including:

  • Balancing occupational safety and health obligations with employee privacy protections,
  • Complying with employment discrimination laws and disability accommodations requirements,
  • Labor-related limitations,
  • Wage and hour issues,
  • Workers compensation/insurance coverage,
  • State and local laws, and
  • Reputational and employee-relations concerns

Please send questions and comments ahead of the session to

Please note that a recording of this webinar will be sent to registrants after the event.
