An article recently published by Reuters covered employer options for COVID-19 vaccine policies amid potential U.S. approval of the first COVID-19 vaccine. According to Reuters, the split between those who support and those who oppose the vaccine have led to an array of choices for how employers could handle employee vaccinations. Potential options include free COVID-19 shots and a cash bonus for employees that get immunized. For those unwilling to get vaccinated, employees could get reassigned or lose their jobs.
The article went on to say that many companies are doing their research to determine the best course of action, from consulting with lawyers and health care experts to polling their workers.
In the Reuters article, Dallas employment lawyer Rogge Dunn weighed in on the subject of employer options for COVID-19 vaccine policies. Dunn is advising businesses on implementing workplace programs to encourage employees to get vaccinated.
“Some of my clients say, ‘if you get a vaccine, we’ll give you a bonus,'” Dunn said.
