- Can employers require employees to be vaccinated before they return to work?
- Can employees refuse to return to work if their colleagues have not been vaccinated?
- In what cases do employers need to make an accommodation for employees who do not want the vaccine?
- What are the data privacy issues?
- What are the potential liability issues?
