Employers can’t require employees get vaccinated ‘if it’s not in legislation’

    Sky News Australia – Jan 14, 2021

    Business Partner at Employsure Emma Dawson says “it will come down to legislation” if employers will be able to make their employees get the COVID-19 vaccine.

    “It’s brand new territory and I think it’s going to be very important for guidelines to be provided by the government for legislation, as well to provide some further guidelines,” she told Sky News host Cory Bernardi.

    Ms Dawson said any potential legislation will come down to “the level of risk associated” with an industry.

    She said it could be difficult for employers to require employees get the jab.

    “If it’s not in legislation we can’t direct or require employees to get the COVID-19 vaccine.”
