UPCOMING WEBINAR



What Dealerships Need to Know About
President Biden's Planned Workplace Vaccine Mandates

Date:  Thursday, November 11, 2021
Time: 10:00 - 11:00 AM CST
Presented by: Fisher Phillips

           
 
In arguably the most far-reaching move of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Biden administration recently announced that federal workplace safety officials will soon issue a rule that will require all employees with 100 or more employees to either ensure their workers are vaccinated or require unvaccinated employees to produce a weekly negative test result before coming to work.

As you would expect, there are many moving parts with such a significant development, and employers are bound to have questions.  When will this new rule take effect?  What if my state intends to challenge the mandate? How is the 100 employee threshold determined?  Who pays for the tests?  And what kind of tests are we talking about?

Join attorneys Tim Scott and Steve Cupp for a LADA/MADA webinar to address these and many other questions - and come away with some actions you can start implementing now to prepare your dealerships for the mandate.
