New York City's Private Employer Vaccine Mandate

On December 19, 2021, Mayor Bill de Blasio and the New York City Commissioner of Health and Mental Hygiene issued a private employer vaccine mandate which requires workers in New York City who perform in-person work or interact with the public for work to provide proof of vaccination before entering the workplace. The mandate did not provide much of a runway for employers to come into compliance, as employers had to make sure employees received their first vaccine dose by December 27th – just eleven days from the announcement.

It is also important to remember that all New York employers remain subject to the NY HERO Act, which requires employers to implement a written airborne infectious disease plan and certain exposure controls whenever the Health Commissioner declares a public health emergency involving an airborne infectious disease.

During this webinar, we will provide a detailed analysis of this latest development and answer key questions including:

  • Which businesses are covered by the Order?

  • What does the Order required covered entities to do?

  • Who must display proof of vaccination? Do I need to check proof of vaccination for contractors visiting my workplace who are employed by another company?

  • What kind of records do I need to keep when I check for proof of vaccination?

  • How do I verify my workers’ proof of vaccination?

  • Do I need to verify proof of vaccination for workers who do not live in New York City?

  • What if a worker says their religion or a medical condition prevents them from getting vaccinated?

  • Are employers required to pay employees if they do not submit proof of a COVID19 vaccine dose or a request for a reasonable accommodation by the December 27th deadline?

This program is valid for 1 PDC for the SHRM-CPSM or SHRM-SCPSM.

COVID-19 Emergency Standards / Permanent Standards / Enforcement

As America grapples with the latest surge of cases caused by the Omicron variant, President Biden has continued to make “Vaccinating the Unvaccinated” a focal point of his administration.  At the heart of this effort is the “Vaccinate or Test” ETS which is now scheduled to go into effect on January 10, 2022, with testing due to begin on February 9, 2022. While quite a few employers continued preparations for the ETS after it was stayed by the Fifth Circuit, most employers are now having to restart compliance efforts during the holidays in order to meet these new deadlines.

During this webinar, attorneys from CMC’s COVID-19 Task Force will provide a detailed analysis of the rule and address these important questions raised by the latest development on the COVID-19 front:

  • What does OSHA’s new COVID-19 “Vaccinate or Test” emergency rule require?

  • How should employers develop a compliant testing strategy?

  • What are the various state plan states doing?

  • Does the rule account in any way for natural immunity for employees who have been infected and recovered from COVID-19?  What about booster shots?

  • What is on the horizon as far as a permanent infectious disease rule?

  • Where does the Healthcare COVID-19 ETS stand?
