RALEIGH – Leaders of organizations face lots of questions about COVID-19 vaccination and the workplace:
  • Can employers mandate that employees get vaccinated?  Should they?
  • What are the federal and NC guidelines, and do they differ?  Which governs?
  • What are the vaccine priority levels?
  • What defines “essential business/employee?”
  • Is eligibility defined by an employee’s role or by the employer’s type?
  • What is the latest on recent and pending announcements on expanded vaccine availability?
  • How should employers communicate about vaccine eligibility to their employees?  Or should they?
 These questions and more will be addressed in a special live (virtual) session being hosted by the North Carolina Technology Association (NC TECH) this Thursday, February 18 at 10 AM. 
The briefing will be presented by Natalie Sanders, an employment law attorney with the Brooks Pierce law firm, which also serves as NC TECH’s state government counsel.  Questions can be submitted during the live presentation (all registrants can watch a recording of the session afterward if unavailable for the live feed).
