Solicitor, Mikaela French and Practice Manager, Alexandra Hohoi from Marrawah Law talking about if workplaces can make the COVID-19 vaccination mandatory? Australia is currently preparing to roll out a national vaccination program for COVID-19 in the coming months which raises concerns for employers and employees. Many employers and organisations, especially those that employ or work with vulnerable groups including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People are thinking about whether they can require their employees to be vaccinated as a condition of employment.
