Date: Tuesday, January 12
Time: 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.
Platform: Zoom Webinar

Webinar Focus: Please join us for a roundtable discussion about the legal considerations surrounding the COVID-19 vaccine in the hospitality industry. The discussion will be led by attorney Martin Siegel, chair of the COVID-19 Response Service Team. He will be accompanied by partner Derek Dissinger, chair of the Hospitality Industry Group, and partner Joshua Schwartz, member of the Employment Practice Group. The three attorneys will talk about some of the specific challenges the hospitality industry faces when it comes to the COVID-19 vaccine becoming available. Some of the questions they will discuss are: Can employers mandate some or all of its employees to get vaccinated? Can companies (restaurants, hotels, event venues) require proof of vaccination before allowing patrons to enter its facility or access certain amenities/areas? Can employers incentivize employees to get vaccinated? Can companies require employees and/or patrons to sign a waiver of liability if they decide not to receive the vaccination? How can following current mitigation measures help to minimize liability?
