Rogge Dunn Gives Insight on CNBC Article Regarding Covid Vaccine Labor Laws

Rogge Dunn recently gave insight in a CNBC article about Covid vaccine labor laws. Although distribution of the newly developed Covid vaccine is swiftly approaching, there is still a difficult hurdle to overcome: convincing the public to take the vaccine. However, some employers may not be giving their employees the option.

In an interview with CNBC, employment lawyer Rogge Dunn gave insight into topics related to Covid vaccine labor laws. In short, Dunn said it is legally within an employer’s rights to require employees to take the vaccine. “Under the law, an employer can force an employee to get vaccinated, and if they don’t take it, fire them,” Dunn said.

Why would employers require employee vaccinations? Dunn explained it’s partly a marketing or PR tactic. “They think it gives them a competitive advantage. They can say to their customers, ‘Hey, our restaurant is safe. All of our employees have been vaccinated.”
