What employers around the world need to know about COVID-19 vaccines and the workplace

COVID-19 workforce vaccination policies are a trending and topical issue confronting employers worldwide as vaccines become approved and government and health organizations plan for vaccination programs in most jurisdictions. Baker McKenzie has been developing strategic solutions for clients to devise a compliant, risk-mitigating global COVID-19 vaccination program to protect their workforces and promote business continuity. Check out the videos below covering North America, the UK, Europe and Gulf region, and the Asia Pacific region.

An increasing number of jurisdictions around the globe are publishing guidelines and legislation governing the legal and practical aspects of workplace vaccination programs. As such, we are advising employers on the permissibility of vaccine mandates in particular areas, best practices relating to the ability to require proof of vaccination (including data privacy considerations), how to treat employees who refuse vaccines, and much more.  

Baker McKenzie is pleased to present our global video programs providing quick, practical tips on today’s most pressing labor and employment issues for employers, in particular relating to COVID-19 and workplace vaccination policies.
