byScott Hoeppner of TDS Law and Lisa Cefali of Legacy Bowes onMay 19, 2021

As many industries plan for a return to in-person work, “vaccinations and the workplace” is a pressing topic facing leadership teams across the country. As leaders and business owners, there is a responsibility to keep your team safe and healthy in their work environment. An employee’s rights as an individual is also of the utmost priority. Is it a responsibility or a requirement for an organization to develop a vaccine policy? Is a workplace policy the best option? Are there exceptions to the rule? In this webinar, explore these questions and more with panelists including Labour and Employment Lawyer and Partner at TDS Law, Scott Hoeppner, Partner, Executive Search & Strategic Development at Legacy Bowes, Lisa Cefali and moderator Lauren McNabb, Host of CJOB 680 Morning Show, ‘The Start’.
