No jab, no job? COVID-19 vaccination and the workplace.

The COVID-19 pandemic has presented employers in the market and social research industry with many challenges, including transitioning to remote working and managing government support payments while also supporting employee engagement and wellbeing.

Now, there’s a new challenge for our members: understanding and implementing government directions around vaccine requirements. Vaccine mandates, or the lack of them, are proving complicated for employers to implement.  Our webinar will help ADIA members understand how best to manage these mandates while mitigating risks to their businesses.

The webinar will cover the current directions for key states and industries, as well as relevant case law.
