Can Your Boss Mandate a Covid-19 Vaccine When You Return to Work in Washington DC?

There is a strong push by the federal government to encourage everyone who is medically able to get the COVID vaccine. While they can’t require an individual to do so, they can encourage it by passing laws or measures that restrict the privileges of those who choose not to do so.

Businesses Can Require COVID-19 Vaccines

One of the measures taken is giving the approval for businesses to require their employees to be fully vaccinated and provide proof of vaccination or be fired. Generally, any businesses who took this stance provided access to vaccine shots at no cost to the employees to show reasonable accommodations to limit their exposure to litigation. While many businesses did choose to follow this path, it wasn’t required of them to do so.

Many businesses have taken the approach that they will allow their employees who are not fully vaccinated to continue working so long as they take a weekly Covid test showing a negative reading.

This has multiple benefits for both the employee and employer because this is a compromise that respects individual choice but also allows for a safe work environment for all those who choose to work there. It also helps prevent the loss of top employees who chose not to get vaccinated and shows a level of compassion to those employees, which builds a stronger bond of loyalty.
