Michael Shadiack, Chair of Connell Foley's Labor and Employment Group, is featured in the article "Answers on Mandating Vaccines and Other Tricky COVID-19 Workplace Matters," published in New Jersey Business Today, a publication of the New Jersey Business & Industry Association (NJBIA).
The article recaps Mike's webinar presentation "Managing New COVID-19 Workplace Considerations," which he presented on March 18 to the NJBIA Human Resource Council. As Mike told the audience, "The question that every employer has been asking is, ‘Can I as an employer mandate the vaccine?’ and the answer to that question is, actually, yes." The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), which is the federal agency that enforces civil rights laws against workplace discrimination, specifically addressed this issue with guidance it issued last December, he said.
