EEOC Issues New Guidance on COVID-19 Vaccines
June 2, 2021
On May 28, 2021, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission issued updated informal guidance on COVID-19 and the federal employment laws that it enforces. This round of guidance focused on COVID-19 vaccines and their intersection with the workplace. With the CDC recently exempting fully vaccinated individuals from masking requirements (except where otherwise required by other federal, state, or local laws or regulations), the EEOC’s updated guidance is especially timely and important.
