Federal Contractors: Vaccine Mandates & Your Workforce

October 28, 2021 | 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM

Federal contractor employees, including those who work from home, must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by Dec. 8 unless they’re granted a legal accommodation. Non-compliant contractors risk the cancellation of their contracts as well as False Claims Act prosecutions if they lie about compliance. Non-contractor employers await OSHA’s COVID-19 vaccination and testing requirements.

This webinar will help employers answer questions about how these segments of the workforce will adapt to vaccine mandates and prepare for the possibility of litigation based on new policies and their implementation.

Our panel of experts will:

  • Address mandatory vaccine policies and masking and physical distancing requirements
  • Compare the circumstances for employers that are government contractors and those that are not
  • Discuss how far the vaccine mandate will reach into contractors’ vendor, supply chain, and subcontractor relationships

Register today for an in-depth look at how the mandate could affect your workforce.
