“As vaccines rollout, employers should know rights, obligations in maintaining safe workplace: lawyer”, by Aidan McNabb, Law Times News

Law Times News quotes Toronto lawyer Shane Todd in an article on employers rights and obligations in maintaining safe workplace.

With vaccines slowly rolling out in Ontario, employers will need to know their rights and obligations and how to navigate their relationship with workers. Whether employers can require vaccination as a condition for employment and the factors to keep in mind when an employee refuses are among the subjects on which employment lawyer Shane Todd, a partner at Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP, is currently advising clients.

Todd will present on vaccines in the workplace, at Canadian Lawyer’s Employment Law Masterclass on April 27. The program, which may qualify for 3.5 hours of CPD credit, begins at 9 am. Vaccines in the workplace is the second session of the day and begins at 9:50.

“It's going to be very fact specific,” says Todd. “Some employers may be able to require employees to get vaccinated. But it's going to depend on the particular context of the workplace and the nature of the work.”
