COVID-19 heightened the critical role that employers play in protecting employees’ safety. New vaccination mandates and policies have the potential to further complicate the return to work in an already fraught business environment.

Organizations responsible for complying with COVID-19 vaccination mandates need to put processes in place to monitor and track employee vaccination status, exemptions, test results, and health attestations.
