Employers are expected to require COVID vaccinations for employees and on-site contractors by the middle of 2021. Some will likely require it for members or frequent customers. Some employees will claim religious or disability exemption as is their right to do so. But now the most recent guidance from the U. S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission confirms that employers can put these unvaccinated workers on unpaid leave. Employment law experts say this is a clear issue in favor of employers. Based on the comments we read about resistance to vaccination especially among populations of lower education and income, this could possibly create a new second wave of unemployment and, so far, there are no state or federal plans to deal with the issue. http://www.eeoc.gov/wysk/what-you-should-know-about-covid-19-and-ada-rehabilitation-act-and-other-eeo-laws
