FOR CA EMPLOYERS ONLY – NOT FINANCE RELATED BUT IMPORTANT IF YOU HAVE ONSITE EMPLOYEES
An alert compliments of Greenberg Glusker:
The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (“DFEH”) has updated its COVID-19 guidance (effective 3/4/21, replacing its previous version from 7/24/20).
Use Caution If You Are Considering Making Vaccines Mandatory
The DFEH now says employers may require employees to receive a Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved vaccination. We suspect that many employers will be misled by this guidance because many COVID vaccines are available and being administered to many people. The new guidance relates only to FDA-approved vaccines. Currently available COVID vaccines are not FDA-approved; they have only received emergency use authorization (“EUA”) at this time.
