Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccination Policy Guidance for Washington Employers
With the recent release of several COVID-19 vaccines, employers everywhere likely see this as an escape route from the pandemic. Many employers are asking whether they can require their employees to get these vaccines through employer-imposed mandatory vaccine policies. To date, federal, state, and local authorities have not issued laws or regulations requiring employers to implement mandatory vaccine policies. Employers should look to existing laws and regulations that impact employer-based vaccination requirements, as summarized in Summit's alert: Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccination Policy Guidance for Washington Employers.
