Mandatory Workplace Vaccination Policies

Mandatory Workplace Vaccination Policies

On 11 June 2021, the Department of Employment and Labour (Department) issued an updated Consolidated Direction on Occupational Health and Safety (Directive) which, among other things, expressly permits an employer to implement a mandatory workplace vaccination policy subject to specific guidelines.

When implementing a mandatory workplace vaccination policy, the Department has cautioned employers to ensure that the rights of employees to bodily integrity and religious freedoms and beliefs are taken into account.
