Training Overview

Who has been vaccinated at your organization? Learn if you can legally answer this question.

The ADA requires employers to maintain confidentiality regarding employee health information. During this pandemic, the rules get even more complicated.

When determining to reveal an employee’s infection and vaccination status to others, you must weigh individual privacy rights with your larger team’s safety. The decisions are not always obvious, and one error can incur liability for your organization. You need to understand the relevant laws and government guidance.
