Whether your business will be introducing mandatory vaccinations or just encouraging employees to be vaccinated, it is essential to have a policy setting out employees' rights and obligations in this area.
The Fair Work Ombudsman has recently updated its guidance on COVID-19 vaccinations in the workplace, which suggests that it will possible for some businesses to have a mandatory vaccination program in place.
To help Australian businesses, we've prepared the COVID-19 Workplace Vaccination Policy template, which details guidance notes to assist businesses developing a suitable policy for their workplace and includes matters such as:
- Collecting vaccination information;
- Employees taking time off to be vaccinated;
- What grounds an employee can be required to be vaccinated and the consequences if they refuse to do so.
This policy template can be downloaded for free by filling in the form.
