Free Covid 19 Vaccination Policy

7 February 2022

Is your business at risk? 

January is over and restrictions to businesses are melting away, but no doubt you are still feeling the ongoing financial and emotional tolls of these past two years. How are you protecting yourself against difficult employee vaccination status conversations and decisions? 

We have seen in the news over the past few weeks that retailers such as Ikea, Morrisons and Next, who have suffered from the effects of the “pingdemic,” are changing their policies around sick leave, creating a relationship between employee enhanced benefits and vaccination status. 

Can you treat employees differently based on vaccination status? 

Employers must tread carefully if they are adopting policies based on vaccination status to ensure they do not open themselves up to grievances and claims of discrimination. 

Vaccination status is a very personal and divisive topic, and can be the cause of workplace disagreements and ultimately lead to disputes if the conversation is not handled correctly. 

Make sure you are protected 

To avoid confusion and minimise the risk of potential disputes with your employees, it is important to make sure you have a clear and comprehensive policy covering covid vaccinations in place.  

You need to protect your business from claims of: 

  • Discrimination 
  • Mishandling of personal / sensitive data 
  • Workplace bullying 
  • Harassment
