COVID-19 Vaccine and HR Issues
The COVID-19 vaccine raises many questions for employers. Should you mandate it? Should you recommend it? What policies do you need? This program presented by Lerch, Early & Brewer, Chtd. will address these questions and more to help employers plan for the day when the vaccine is readily available. 
The program will also include an update from Dr. Matthew Mintz on the current vaccine situation. 
There will be time for Q&A at the end of the program.
