On December 16, 2020, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) provided its first specific guidance to employers regarding the COVID-19 vaccine. The primary question for a lot of employers is: can we make the vaccine mandatory?

The short answer is, maybe. Generally, an employer can require its employees to take the vaccine. There are certain exceptions provided by applicable law, such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Title VII and the Illinois Human Rights Act. This session will include a presentation of this topic by Lorna Geiler followed by limited Q&A. Participants will be able to ask questions in the chat box, which will be addressed at the end of the presentation, moderated by a member of our team.

Lorna K. Geiler is a shareholder with Meyer Capel, P.C. She concentrates her practice on employment and labor law representing primarily employers in ensuring compliance with applicable laws and, where appropriate, litigating. Lorna also represents employers in union organization efforts and labor negotiations.
