ABC has launched a COVID-19 Vaccine Toolkit as part of the Coronavirus Update webpage to help inform and educate members about the latest available resources and information on the COVID-19 vaccine.

The webpage is set up so that members can easily navigate through the resources, which include five categories of information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and ABC general counsel Littler Mendelson P.C.

  1. COVID-19 Vaccines—Important Things to Know
  2. COVID-19 Vaccination for Essential Workers
  3. EEOC Guidance on EEO Law and COVID-19 Vaccination
  4. Common Questions Regarding COVID-19 Vaccine
  5. COVID-19 Statewide Vaccination Plans

In addition to the new toolkit, ABC National will be hosting a webinar on Thursday, April 15, at 3 p.m. ET, “COVID-19 Vaccine—Legal and Practical Considerations for Employers,” to help employers navigate the constantly evolving legal landscape and unique employee relations issues tied to vaccination programs in the employment setting.
