With the recent emergency use authorization of two new COVID-19 vaccines in the United States, employers are considering whether they can-or should-implement mandatory vaccination policies for employees when the vaccine becomes widely available. Please join us for a conversation with the EEOC’s Associate Legal Counsel, Carol Miaskoff, as she discusses the EEOC’s most recent guidance for employers.
