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. Whether a vaccine policy, and which type of policy, is right for your workplace depends on what industry you’re in, your state restrictions, the level of risk to your employees, your workplace culture, your ability and desire to track employee vaccinations, and numerous other considerations.

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.
