In the coming weeks and months, COVID-19 vaccines will be distributed around the United States. Employers will have questions about vaccination procedures, such as whether they may require employees to be vaccinated, what they may ask about employees’ vaccination records, and whether they must accommodate employees with religious opposition to being vaccinated. Recently, the EEOC updated its guidance, What You Should Know About COVD-19 and the ADA Rehabilitation Act, and Other EEO Laws, to address these vaccination concerns. This alert addresses the essential points of the EEOC’s guidance.
