California employment lawyer says there is confusion over how to accommodate religious beliefs or medical conditions
Earlier this month, President Joe Biden announced his much anticipated vaccine mandate for federal workers – aimed at preventing the spread of the highly-contagious Delta variant. The move also encouraged employers with more than 100 employees to vaccinate their staff or test each employee on a weekly basis. The news caused division across the US, with political leaders coming out in both favour and opposition to the ruling. For employers in California, the issue of mandated vaccines is yet more complicated – with questions around religion, local laws, and anti-vaxxers, on the rise.
