Vaccine rollout has continued to accelerate across Canada, and with it comes growing optimism about a return to a semblance of normalcy. Nowhere is the excitement greater than in the tourism and hospitality industry. However, employers are asking how this new weapon in the fight against COVID-19 might impact their workplaces, including whether employers can mandate their employees to take the vaccine.
The BC Hotel Association (BCHA) in partnership with Canada West Ski Areas Association (CWSAA) and go2HR have engaged Ryan Anderson, Partner at Mathews Dinsdale & Clark LL P to help address these questions. Ryan will provide an overview of the requirements and key OH&S, privacy, human rights, labour and employment considerations for the potential implementation of a COVID-19 vaccination policy, mandatory or otherwise, where one is warranted.
