COVID-19 Vaccinations: What to Consider BEFORE Implementing a Policy

With the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccines, employers are faced with myriad questions around when – and if – they should have a vaccination policy for their workplace. Unfortunately, there is no “one size fits all” approach.

Read on for a detailed discussion of these issues and more in our comprehensive publication COVID-19 Vaccine and the Workplace: Employer Considerations and Responsibilities, Checklist, and Frequently Asked Questions.

Implement an Employee Complaint Hotline and Update Your Handbook Now

The employee complaint intake process is a critical part of an employer’s efforts to address misconduct. Your employee should connect to a live person on every call and you should be immediately notified about the complaint so you can address the issue before it festers into a claim!

Once a complaint hotline is implemented, be sure to update your employee handbook complaint reporting procedure with the hotline number.

Myth: If federal, state, and local laws conflict on an issue, the employer gets to choose which one to follow.
