Bradley Partner John Rodgers Quoted in SHRM Article on Employee Vaccine Status

 

[!

Bradley partner John Rodgers was quoted in SHRM on when employers should inform supervisors on vaccine status information. Although questioning employees about whether they have been vaccinated is best left to HR, a supervisor may ask employees if they have been vaccinated, as this is not a disability-related inquiry. If a worker has not been vaccinated, a supervisor may not ask why or whether the worker plans to get vaccinated in the future.

"You sometimes don't want your supervisors knowing too much about a direct report's medical information," explained Rodgers.

The original article, "Who Can Know About Employee Vaccination Status?” appeared in SHRM on July 6, 2021.
