Three COVID-19 vaccines have been authorized for emergency use in the U.S. and employees across South Florida, and America, are returning to the workplace.
It’s good news… but it comes with questions – some legal, ethical and others medical. There are those who do not want to be vaccinated. Can you require the vaccinations at your workplace? Can you incentivize employees to be vaccinated? How do you protect your business, customers and other employees during this time? What about vaccine passports? Are we seeing the UK strain, or any new strains, in Miami? Does workers comp law come into play with COVID-19 transmission?
Angelo Filippi, Employment and Labor Lawyer, and Dr. Susan Nelson, Medical Director of Physicians Health Center, will address your most pressing questions on how to move in a safe direction legally and medically as your employees return to work. Karen Gilmartin, Workers Compensation Attorney, will address compensability as it relates to the virus.
