Michael Shadiack, Chair of Connell Foley's Labor and Employment Group, is featured in an ROI-NJ article "Mandate mystery: Lawyers say companies thinking about COVID vaccination policies have a lot of factors to consider." The article discusses workplace COVID-19 vaccine mandates and the factors employers should take into account when deciding whether to implement such a policy.

In the article, Mike explains how this is "not a rubber-stamp issue" and that what works for one company may not necessarily work for another. “Everyone has to look at it individually from what fits their own company as far as size and staffing, and where their employees are based.”

"As more companies have turned to remote work, and as a result have employees spread out across multiple states more than they once did, employers have to take into account what the rules might be in other states as well as where they’re headquartered," Mike states.

The interview touches upon additional vaccination issues, including permissible medical inquiry, confidentiality, and the tracking and record keeping ability of this information.
