“More companies are demanding employees get vaccinated before returning to the office – and experts say they have the right to do so” by Christine Dobby, The Toronto Star

The Toronto Star quotes Toronto lawyer Shane Todd in an article on vaccination policies for workers returning to the office.

Shane Todd, an employment law partner at Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP, said employers have been mulling this issue over since at least January, many approaching it with “trepidation.”

“Lots of employers have been preparing policies and talking about it, but none of them had, until quite recently, jumped into the fray to say that they were going to (implement vaccine policies),” Todd said. He added that the “inflection point” seemed to be federal and provincial announcements on vaccine policies for public sector employees.
