Employers Consider Mask and Vaccination Policies as People Return to Work

Benjamin E. Mudrick, partner in our Labor and Employment practice was recently interviewed by 13 WHAM News regarding employer mask and vaccine policies. In the segment titled, “Employers Consider Mask and Vaccination Policies as People Return to Work,” Ben provides insight on whether private businesses in New York can require employees to get the COVID-19 vaccine. Ben stated, “In most cases, that ‘my way or the highway, get vaccinated or be fired,’ that’s just not going to work out for most employers, and it’s going to backfire. In the long run, I think there are ways to encourage employees to get vaccinated.”
