Gow-Gates Insurance Brokers, in partnership with Bartier Perry Lawyers, invites you to attend our webinar:

“COVID-19 Vaccines in the Workplace: Mandatory or Voluntary?”

With the rapid rollout of vaccines underway, employers are forced to consider whether and how to implement workplace vaccination policies. During this webinar our guest speakers Darren Gardner, Employment and Industrial Law Specialist, and Robbie Elder, Employers Liability Specialist, will explore the current workplace vaccine compliance landscape and offer best practices for implementing vaccination policies aimed at making workplaces safe and while accounting for jurisdictional, political, philosophical and physical divides.

Join us as we discuss and explore:
  • Vaccination choice rights for employees
  • Challenges managing risk for unvaccinated employees
  • Legal responsibilities for employers -v- employee ‘rights’
  • Vaccine policy options, including voluntary versus mandatory policies and securing employee buy-in
