Texas Lawyer Publishes Article Written by Rogge Dunn on How Employers Should Handle COVID-19 Vaccine Open Eligibility

An article written by Rogge Dunn Group’s Rogge Dunn was recently published on the Texas Lawyer website. The article, titled “With Open Eligibility to COVID-19 Vaccine, How Employers should proceed,” provides insight into if employers should require their employees to obtain the COVID-19 vaccine once they return to working in an office setting.

According to Dunn, employers can and should require their employees to become vaccinated once organizational operations return to an in-person setting. This requirement acknowledges those with a disability or sincerely held religious beliefs that would make them exempt from receiving the vaccine. Additionally, Dunn goes on to cite that this vaccine requirement is not without precedence. The 1905 ruling in Jacobson V. Massachusetts as well as an April 2019 order from a New York City health commissioner, both provide instances where the state has issued repercussions for noncompliance of compulsory vaccinations.
