Laura Thalacker, a Las Vegas-based management-side labor and employment lawyer, spoke to IR Digital’s podcast host Jennifer Riggins on our most recent, topical podcast…. ‘If you can, should you? Employer choices on requiring the Covid-19 Vaccine.’
Laura and Jen spoke about whether employers may require, or simply encourage, their employees to get vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus and what type of legal issues may arise under U.S. federal and state law. Their broad ranging conversation also covers practical ways for employers to encourage vaccinations and to overcome vaccine hesitancy among workers, as well as Laura’s thoughts on whether so-called “vaccine passports” will bring back tourists and revitalize Nevada’s economy.
