 Recorded Webinar: COVID-19 Vaccination and Privacy Rights in the Workplace

Date: Friday 22nd October 2021
Duration: Approximately 1 Hour

With the rollout of mandatory vaccination and rapidly changing public health settings across the country, employers are grappling with questions surrounding privacy. When can you lawfully ask and collect information regarding vaccination status, and what can you do with that information once it is collected? 

This session examines the key issues, including:

  • Navigating the guidance from the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner
  • When can you ask an employee about their vaccination status?
  • Can you ask clients or visitors to disclose their vaccination status?
  • What if an employee or third party refuses to disclose?
  • What if an employee refuses the vaccine – can you lawfully require reasons or medical evidence exempting the employee from vaccination?
  • How should you store and protect information collected regarding vaccination status?
  • To whom can that information be shared? Navigating situations involving clients, colleagues and others
