MARC’s John L. Shahdanian, II to Discuss Employment Law and the COVID-19 Vaccine at NJSBA 2021 Annual Meeting
What do employers need to know about mandating COVID-19 vaccines in the workplace? What are the exceptions, and do the rules differ in private and public sectors? How are accommodations to be considered, and can employers provide incentive programs to encourage vaccination?
