Zachary Schurin Featured on NBC Connecticut to Discuss Required Vaccinations For Job Applicants
Zachary D. Schurin, an attorney in Pullman & Comley's Labor, Employment Law & Employee Benefits practice, was interviewed by Dan Corcoran of NBC Connecticut to discuss private employers' decisions to require COVID-19 vaccinations from job applicants. According to a report of jobs site Indeed, the number of job postings that list COVID-19 vaccines as a requirement spiked 34% from July to August.
Zach says no one should be surprised by these new vaccination requirements. "I think that this is a trend that we're going to see continue. Most private employers have their employees hired on an at-will basis that gives them the right to mandate vaccinations for employees with certain exceptions.” He goes on to say, "employers see this as a very important requirement going forward, as the pandemic continues with the emergence of the Delta variant."
