In the days since the first COVID-19 vaccinations were administered to healthcare workers in the U.S., the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) issued new guidance for vaccinations in the workplace. The guidance document explains how an employer’s vaccine program interacts with and implicates anti-discrimination statutes like the ADA, Title VII, and the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (“GINA”). It also provides parameters for employers who wish to require/administer vaccines.
