As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, so do the health and safety requirements for workplaces. Many businesses are considering establishing vaccination policies in an attempt to protect employees and customers. This presents new legal challenges and considerations.

Join employment lawyers Ian Johncox and Stephanie Miner as they discuss some of the key issues surrounding vaccination policies in the workplace, including:

  • What are the obligations of an employer?
  • When can an employer require mandatory vaccination?
  • What should a vaccination policy include?
  • What happens if a vaccination policy is not followed?
  • What are the relevant privacy considerations for employees and customers?

Ian Johncox practices in the areas of employment law, franchise litigation, contract litigation and occupier liability defence.

Ian’s employment law practice includes acting for employers and employees, which gives him a balanced perspective to his clients’ issues.  He will assist you in navigating the complex maze of employment law.  His employer clients look to him for employment contracts, personnel policies, advice on disciplining employees, preparing termination packages, defending wrongful dismissal lawsuits, advice on employers’ statutory obligations and human rights advice. Ian assists employees in negotiating employment contracts and obtaining fair termination packages.

Ian’s litigation practice includes commercial landlord and tenant litigation, real estate litigation, franchise litigation, other contract litigation and defending occupier liability claims for landlords and property owners.

Litigation is three things: Expensive, Time Consuming and a Pain in the Posterior. Ian’s approach to litigation is:

  • Assessment: acquiring a thorough knowledge of the facts of the case;
  • Research: ensuring that we have a sound grasp of the relevant legislation and caselaw;
  • Strategy: advising the client and developing the plan for addressing the case; and
  • Execution: carrying out the plan.

Ian is a former President of the Durham Community Legal Clinic and former President of the Greater Oshawa Chamber of Commerce.
