Senior associate Joseph Abboud recently appeared on a local news segment in Wisconsin to discuss the legality of employer-issued COVID-19 vaccine mandates.
Mr. Abboud said that vaccine mandates were upheld by the Supreme Court over 100 years ago. For the most part, he said, employers can mandate that their employees get the COVID-19 vaccine, with exceptions reserved for those with certain religious beliefs or disabilities. However, the legality of vaccine mandates may vary depending on where you live.
“Federal law doesn’t stop anyone or require anyone from imposing the vaccine mandate," said Mr. Abboud. "The question is going to be what are the laws in your state and in your county."
