COVID-19 Vaccine Requirements and Exemptions
1.0 Hour of General CLE Credit*
Friday, November 19, 2021
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM (via Zoom)
This CLE presentation will cover a history of vaccination mandates, as well as briefly explore some of the established law on vaccination mandates. The CLE will explain how the current vaccine mandates are allowed under law, including a brief discussion of the current recommendation that all employers with more than 100 employees require vaccinations. The presenters will further explore religious and medical exemptions from vaccination mandates. The analysis will provide an overview of the Americans with Disabilities Act and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, including the requirements of each when requesting or responding to a request for an exemption from vaccinations in the workplace. The differences between an “undue hardship” and an “undue burden” will be discussed.
