About Course

Mandating your staff to get vaccinated is critical both ways legally and financially. You want to protect your practice and patients, but unless you do it right you could face huge penalties. Multiple federal and state laws are cracking down on compliance with vaccination requirements for your medical office staff, regardless of what you are vaccinating for. All it takes is one employee to complain that your immunization process infringes on their privacy or employment rights, and you’ll be faced with an expensive legal mess.

This webinar will address questions such as whether employers can mandate COVID19 and flu vaccinations for employees. If the vaccinations are not mandatory, can employees be made to wear masks or can other restrictions be imposed? We will discuss any federal and state laws that apply to vaccinations including HIPAA, ADA, Title VII, and EEOC guidelines. What can employers do to encourage vaccinations?
