Vaccine Mandates for the Community Services Sector: a Legal View

Typography

This webinar will explores the organisational impacts of implementing vaccination requirements for workers in the community services sector and its service users. While some parts of the sector have been mandated, other community services organisations are grappling with decisions about whether to impose their own mandates to protect vulnerable service users and workers. 

Legal and practical issues associated with developing and implementing vaccination policies that will protect your staff and service users, comply with the law, respect staff and ensure organisations are human rights respecting will be covered.
