Webinar on Federal Vaccine Mandates Compliance Guide

2021

CAPLAW recently issued a step-by-step guide to help the Community Action network navigate the employee vaccination mandates announced by OSHA, Head Start, and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). In this resource we describe the planning process your CAA should consider as you develop and update your policies to reflect the new requirements. We also provide two template policies to assist your CAA in complying with the new mandates: a mandatory vaccination policy and a policy requiring vaccinations or allowing employees to choose weekly COVID-19 testing and face coverings. In this webinar we discuss these essential resources, as well as the status of ongoing litigation challenging these mandates.


11/17/21 update: OSHA has suspended implementation and enforcement of the OSHA ETS pending the outcome of current litigation.
