Jessica Summers and Scott Mirsky provided commentary in an article titled: “What new EEOC vaccine incentive guidance means for HR leaders,” by Kathryn Mayer on June 1, 2021.

“Now companies and states can continue on the road to reopening and help more workers to become vaccinated.”

“Businesses have been waiting for the EEOC to weigh in on this. There is now clarity that if an employee receives their vaccine from a third party—someone other than the employer—then the employer is generally permitted to provide the employee with an incentive. Many of our clients are offering gift cards to employees who receive the vaccine. Now we know that this is permissible.”
