The COVID-19 pandemic has put unprecedented strain on EMS agencies. The uncertainty associated with the rising illness rates as a result of the Delta variant has many healthcare institutions and EMS employers mandating all employees become vaccinated against COVID-19. Mandatory vaccination programs bring with them many operational and legal challenges. Join AAA Human Resources & Operations Consultant Scott Moore and Bell Ambulance Service Human Resources Director Ben Jensen for a discussion of the basic elements of a legally compliant workplace vaccination program, the importance of having a trained professional to manage and document accommodation requests, the need for an individualized approach to engaging in the interactive process with requesting employees, and the practical challenges as experience by an experienced HR leader.
