Can Employers Legally Require COVID-19 Vaccination?

August 4, 2021

By: Adam P. Mastroleo

As a bonus to Bond’s August 3 Back to Business webinar, Bond labor and employment attorney Adam P. Mastroleo recorded a short video about what employers should consider before they mandate COVID-19 vaccination for their employees.

Are such mandates even legal? See what Adam Mastroleo has to say regarding the Americans with Disabilities Act and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Equal Employment and Opportunity Commission (EEOC) about whether or not vaccine mandates violate statutes for employees who request to opt out for medical or religious reasons.

There also have been court cases and an opinion from the federal Department of Justice indicating that employers are within their rights to require vaccination. 

The full presentation covered the following topics:

  • Unemployment Update
  • Update from Albany
  • Employer Vaccine Mandates
