Vaccines and the Workplace – What Employers Need to Consider

Matthew Durham, Registered Foreign Lawyer, Gall

 

Vaccines and the Workplace – What do Employers Need to Consider?

The Hong Kong Government recently opened the Covid-19 vaccination programme up to all adults over the age of 16 with the aim of safeguarding public health and helping to allow further easing of restrictions and a gradual return to normal life and activities.

The vaccination programme raises important and unprecedented questions for employers, however, in terms of protecting their personnel, workplaces and businesses. Can (or should) an employer require an employee to have a vaccination?

Registered Foreign Lawyer Matthew Durham from dispute resolution firm Gall will provide his insights on how employers can approach this sensitive topic so that they are aware of specific legal issues as well as potential concerns individuals may have.

 

Details on how to join will be sent via email by 5pm the day before the webinar.
