As the COVID-19 vaccine becomes more readily available, a question has arisen among business owners: Can you require your employees to get vaccinated? This question is especially relevant among caterers and event professionals who not only interact with the public, but who are also responsible for the health and safety of guests. To help answer many of the questions surrounding whether or not employers can require their staff to be vaccinated, the International Caterers Association hosted a webinar on March 2, “Vaccinating the Workforce for COVID-19,” with the legal team of Michael “Maz” Mazurczak and Lauren Fackler from Melick & Porter.
