Vaccine Policy in the Workplace
The cardinal rule in recruitment is to cast as wide a net as possible in order to attract a large talent pool from which to make a hire.
A vaccine mandate violates this rule as it automatically disqualifies a significant percentage of the talent pool. Furthermore, it leads to the loss of employees and creates legal liability by discriminating against an employee on the basis of one’s medical preference.
Therefore, excluding the unvaccinated from the workforce is a costly mistake for employers.
Instead, remote and other options to accommodate talent are more important now than ever.
