Podcast: Covid-19 Vaccines - Employer Considerations

With Covid-19 vaccines on the horizon, many employers are asking about the possibility of introducing workplace vaccination policies. Over this 6-part series, we unpack several key legal issues related to the Covid-19 vaccines in the workplace.

We look at the law on vaccines in South Africa, we unpack the legal health and safety obligations and potential liability of employers in relation to vaccines, and the legality of introducing mandatory vaccination policies in the workplace. We also look at related potential disciplinary issues, whether workplaces can be used as sites for vaccinations and finally provide insights on managing the personal information of employee vaccine data.
