Can a company force its staff to get vaccinated?

What if an employee refuses to come to the office because it is not deemed "safe"?

Is it a good idea to insist on regular Covid testing in the workplace?

Employers have been wrestling with a myriad of new questions since the onset of Covid-19. As part of the Hong Kong government's "Early Vaccination for All" campaign (launched May 31, 2021), employers are asked to "encourage their staff to get vaccinated, and to arrange vaccination leave or other facilitation measures".

How do companies approach these challenges in a prudent yet constructive manner? How can employers play their part in the effort to open Hong Kong back up again, without compromising the rights and freedoms of employees?

In this seminar, leading corporate and employment lawyers will share their expertise and experience with our members. There will be plenty of time for questions.
