COVID-19: Global employee vaccination and testing guide

Hogan Lovells

As national COVID-19 related restrictions begin to ease, our cross-border guide provides a quick overview of the key questions and issues for employers as staff return to the workplace across a range of jurisdictions. The guide is colour-coded by reference to an employer’s ability and freedom to implement COVID vaccinations and testing for its staff.

Employers that are preparing for and managing a return to the workplace have to consider what role employee vaccinations against and testing for COVID can play, if any, in facilitating that return.

Our colour-coded guide highlights the extent to which employers have the ability and freedom to implement policies on vaccination and testing, and addresses:

  • Whether vaccination is mandatory under local law in different jurisdictions;
  • Employers’ ability to ask employees if they have been vaccinated, or require vaccination as a condition of employment; and
  • How far employers can impose testing requirements as a condition for entry to the workplace.

The guide also highlights other steps that employers can take to encourage employee vaccination where this is not mandatory under local law.
