Can I require my employees to get the COVID-19 vaccine in order to enter my workplace?

February 22, 2021

Yes, an employer can require that an employee receive the COVID-19 vaccine in order to return to the workplace. However, this does not hold true if the employee cannot get the vaccine because of a disability, because their doctor has advised them not to get the vaccine while pregnant or breastfeeding, or because of a sincerely held religious belief, practice, or observance.
