Where do Hardware Store employees fit?
- It depends on the State; they are typically falling in a Phase 1B or 1C. However, if they are 65 and older they may receive the vaccine (State specific see the links below) regardless of their profession.
Should I develop a vaccine policy and require the COVID-19 Vaccine?
- For some employers, implementing a mandatory vaccination policy makes sense, particularly for employees in positions that provide direct health care, caretaking of children and the elderly, or serving other populations at elevated risk from COVID-19. However, there are several important exceptions to a mandatory vaccine policy, making a policy that encourages-but does not require-vaccination easier to administer for many employers.
- It is challenging to mandate a vaccine policy when it is not available to all. We will continue to monitor how employers and employment related government agencies (i.e. EEOC, DOL, etc.) are handling this.
