Federal Government releases guidance to help businesses and employees better understand their rights and responsibilities in relation to the COVID-19 vaccination in the workplaceMarch 2, 2021

The general consensus of the guidance materials released by the Fair Work Ombudsman (FWO) and Safe Work Australia (Safe Work) (collectively, Guidance Materials) is that in most cases, employers are unlikely to be able to mandate COVID-19 vaccinations for their employees.
The Guidance Materials are helpful for employers and employees, providing answers to many of the questions which are likely to arise in the workplace in relation to the vaccine. However, they are designed to only provide generic guidance, and in the case of the FWO guidance, apply
broadly across industries. This means employers must still carefully consider the Guidance Materials in the context of their business
