Tune in to the Australian Grape & Wine Podcast to hear from Workplace Law expert, Will Snow, Partner at Finlaysons Lawyers as he helps us navigate the various State Government Vaccination Mandate positions for grape and wine businesses around Australia.
While the Australian Government’s policy is that receiving a vaccination is free and voluntary, it aims to have as many Australians vaccinated as possible. Community transmission is the bedrock foundation that risk assessment and duty of care is based on to assess and measure risk factors within the workplace. Will expertly tackles the big questions around the “Double Vax” issue and provides us with sound advice on how to navigate your business through this challenging time for all Australian businesses.
The Australian Fair Work Ombudsman provides guidance on requiring employees to be vaccinated, with a good approach on understanding levels of risk for workplaces.
AON Insights also has a great webinar on COVID vaccines and legal issues, with excellent information from a large food manufacturer and why they implemented their mandate – this emphasizes that each employer must consider the issues in their own context.
