COVID-19 Vaccination Policies: What to consider?

10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Indiana State Library
Live Online

Event Details

Description: Are you wondering what to consider in forming your library’s policy on COVID-19 vaccinations? This webinar addresses the legality of mandatory vaccine policies during a pandemic and examines the pros and cons of such policies to help you determine which type of COVID-19 vaccine policy to propose to your board. We will cover:

  • EEOC guidance on mandating the COVID-19 vaccine for employees and the circumstances under which an employer may require employees to be vaccinated.
  • How to provide reasonable accommodations in compliance with federal anti-discrimination laws including people with disabilities under the ADA and people with religious objections under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. 
  • Other options available to employers, such as encouraging staff to become vaccinated or providing incentives for employees who do so. 
  • Specific provisions to consider including in your vaccination policy. 
  • How Indiana's Vaccine Allocation Plan and state law might impact this decision.

This webinar is eligible for 1 LEU which you will be able to download after the webinar.
