Members of our labor and employment and employment counseling teams recently published a LawFlash discussing the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC’s) long-awaited update to its technical assistance guidance on COVID-19 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Rehabilitation Act, and other federal equal employment opportunity (EEO) laws.
The document addresses frequent employer questions related to requiring vaccines for employees and providing incentives to employees to encourage vaccinations under the ADA, Title VII, and the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act. This resource may be of particular interest to employers in the healthcare industry as the EEOC’s update should reassure and help guide employers seeking to mandate or encourage employee vaccination in accordance with federal EEO laws.
