Following the DMC Coalition's release of the Employee Vaccination Policy (Mandatory), several requests were made by members for an Employee Vaccination Policy (Voluntary). That policy is now available. This particular policy is for DMCs that want to encourage their employees to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, as opposed to require its employees to receive the vaccine.
The benefits of this policy include the utilization of a clear and concise employer-employee communication on the subject matter that reduces the chances of a DMC exposing itself to any unnecessary labor and employment law liability. Use of this policy also demonstrates to clients that are concerned about the health and safety of its DMC's personnel that policies and practices are in place and have been considered.
