Episode Notes

In this episode, Husch Blackwell's Meg Pekarske is joined by colleagues Jenna Brofsky, Erica Ash and Wakaba Tessier who provide an update on the legal landscape related to COVID-19 testing and vaccinations. Their conversation explores the liability protections provided by the PREP Act and the legal considerations hospices need to account for when establishing a vaccination program. They break down the latest EEOC vaccination guidance and what it means for hospices as employers, and offer practical insights for navigating the challenges presented by mandating or otherwise encouraging employee vaccinations. 

While nothing is easy these days, we are hopeful this discussion will leave you with some clarity that can ease the burden as you juggle the challenges of the day.
