Breakout sessions

8:45 - 9:50 a.m.

Insperity business resiliency series - Vaccines and the workplace

Presenter: Michael Lipe, Managing Director of Brand & Marketing Strategy / Fernanda Anzek, Director of Human Resource Operations / Andy Ramzel, Vice President, Property and Casualty Services, Insperity

The public/private partnership between the US government and some of the world’s leading pharmaceutical manufacturers has resulted in multiple COVID-19 vaccinations, each showing tremendous effectiveness in early clinical trials. Now, with vaccine distribution plans being developed and rolling out, questions arise around the employer’s responsibilities when it comes to encouraging, or even requiring, employee vaccination. Is a mandate even possible? What about reasonable accommodations? What about liability if an employee has a negative reaction to the vaccine? Or, what about liability if I don’t require it? How do you navigate a situation that is updating in real-time and do so in a way that protects your employees, your customers and the long-term health of your business? Join Insperity for an important session that will unpack the most recent governmental guidance and explore some of the potential pitfalls associated with this emerging topic.

8:45 - 9:50 a.m.
