Scott Moore, Esq., on what the law says about mandatory vaccinations
Moore and Rob Lawrence break down employer mandates and exemptions for mask wearing and vaccination
As we head out of the depths of the pandemic and adjust to the “new normal,” the vaccination status of the workforce – in order to protect both coworkers and patients alike – is a major consideration. This week, a judge rejected a lawsuit from Houston hospital workers who had been suspended for not being vaccinated.
This issue is an emotive one, and to unpick these issues, our host, Rob Lawrence, speaks to employment and HR Lawyer, Scott Moore. Scott helps us understand the issues of mandatory vaccinations, declaration of vaccination status and more.
