Session Description:

Please join the authors of An Employer Playbook for the COVID “Vaccine Wars”: Strategies and Considerations for Workplace Vaccination Policies (Dec. 2020) for the latest information and trends relating to workplace vaccination policies and programs. Topics will include the pros and cons of mandating vaccination or merely encouraging vaccination in the workplace through incentives or otherwise; the EEOC, OSHA, and CDC guidance most relevant to that decision; whether to provide vaccinations on site or other ways to minimize obstacles to employee vaccination; and how to handle employees who cannot be, or claim they cannot be, vaccinated.

 

Speakers:

Jessica Brown is a partner in the Denver office of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher and a member of the firm’s Labor and Employment and White Collar Defense and Investigations Practice Groups. Ms. Brown advises corporate clients regarding anti-harassment, whistleblower complaints, reductions in force, mandatory arbitration programs, return-to-work protocols, and matters that intersect with intellectual property law, such as noncompete agreements and trade secrecy programs. She has assisted clients to conduct audits of their pay practices for purposes of compliance with state and federal equal pay and wage and hour laws. In addition, Ms. Brown has defended nationwide and state-wide class action and individual lawsuits alleging, for example, gender discrimination under Title VII, failure to permit facility access under the Americans with Disabilities Act, and failure to compensate workers properly under the Fair Labor Standards Act. She has been ranked by Chambers USA as a leading Labor & Employment lawyer in Colorado for 16 consecutive years and is currently ranked in Band 1. She also is the current President of the Colorado Bar Association.

Ms. Elliot has defended pharmaceutical and biotech companies in cases involving a broad spectrum of well-known life sciences products including vaccines. She served as national counsel to Wyeth (now Pfizer) in close to 400 product liability actions in which plaintiffs alleged that childhood vaccines cause autism spectrum disorders. She also often assesses product liability risks in connection with planned corporate acquisitions on behalf of acquiring companies. Legal Media Group has named Ms. Elliot to its Expert Guides Guide to the World’s Leading Women in Business Law for Product Liability three times and she has served two terms as a member of the Product Liability Committee for the Association of the Bar of the City of New York.
