Webinar – No Cost


Join other small and mid-sized manufacturers from across Pennsylvania to get information and answers to your questions regarding the COVID-19 vaccination as it relates to employer/employee rights.

This event will cover topics such as:

  • With respect to vaccination, what an employer can and cannot mandate.
  • Vaccination documentation collection, retention and information-sharing requirements.
  • How the company should respond to a worker who refuses to get vaccinated and how to identify and handle acceptable exemptions from vaccination (religious, health, etc.).
  • Legal liability relating to any real or alleged “side effects” of vaccination.
  • How to respond if a customer, vendor or co-worker refuses to work with a non-vaccinated employee.
  • Overall protections that employers have with respect to vaccination and COVID-19 – and how to preserve them.
