No Jab, No Job?


September 21st, 2021 will be remembered for a long time in Melbourne. For all the controversy and emotion around protests from the city's construction workers, the actual topic is a very valid one to have a discussion about.

Mandatory vaccination - should someone be forced to get the COVID-19 Vaccine as a strict condition of their employment?

Andrew Brookes is a Senior Lawyer from the Employment team at Law Squared.

In this episode Andrew speaks to the employer side with regard to current employment law around this topic.

Speaking on behalf of employee rights is Jason Xue, a lawyer at McDonald Murhome

His firm is well-known for its employment law expertise, acting for employees.  As part of Victorian Law Week earlier in the year, Jason ran a webinar titled ‘No jab, no job’. It focused on some of the potential implications of the COVID-19 vaccine on employee rights, including whether an employer can mandate vaccination as requirement of the job.
