Vaccination to protect against Covid-19 is rolling out, but can your business have a policy that staff must be vaccinated?

Employment lawyer Christopher Achkar discusses your rights as an employer who may wish to ask staff to get vaccinated, and what you can do if staff refuse to get the vaccine.

As vaccination rolls out and not every team member is vaccinated at once, creative solutions in the workplace may be needed.

This video was filmed in December 2020 when vaccines had just been announced. More up to date policies regarding vaccination may be announced in the future. Check with an employment lawyer for more information.
