Vaccination Mandates: Local Governments Caught in the Middle

FREE LIVE WEBINAR – Vaccination Mandates:  Local Governments Caught in the Middle

Presented by the CCLGL Section & Bryant Miller Olive P.A.

Panelists: David C. Miller, Denise Heekin, Jennifer Cowan, and John Doty

October 8, 2021, 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m.

The US President has ordered that federal contractors must require employees to be vaccinated. Local governments may constitute federal contractors, depending on their contracts or business with federal agencies. The Florida Governor has threatened to fine any local government that imposes a vaccine mandate. What to do? A panel of local government and labor and employment law attorneys explore the conundrum: What do we know about the President’s order and who it covers? What is a “Federal Contractor” anyway? Do OSHA rules even matter? Is it a stretch to apply the state vaccination law to employees? Are local governments just the hot iron between the hammer and the anvil? Join us to explore this complex issue.
