Training Overview

Is your vaccination policy legal and up to date? Learn how to write legal and appropriate policies.

As the Delta variant of COVID-19 sweeps across the country, employers are increasingly mandating vaccination for employees. The federal government, Google, Walmart, Disney, Facebook, and many other organizations have already announced vaccine requirements.
