COVID-19 vaccine workplace requirement

Rogge Dunn Quoted in CBS 11 Article on Labor Laws Surrounding COVID-19 Vaccine

Rogge Dunn was recently quoted in a CBS 11 article regarding the COVID-19 vaccine workplace requirement.

Leading up to the distribution of the newly-approved COVID-19 vaccine, employees and employers alike are wondering if employers can require their employees to take the vaccine. Because the vaccine was developed and approved within months, many people are wary about the potential safety issues related to the vaccine.

In response to the COVID-19 vaccine workplace requirement question, Rogge Dunn stated that the law is clear. “Unless you have a disability or sincerely held religious beliefs, the employer can force you to take it,” said Dunn. “And if you don’t take it, they can fire you.”

In addition, Dunn says he expects some businesses to use a required vaccine policy as a marketing tool. “I think that’s a good selling point. And that’s one reason I think employers may well require it.”
