Robert Lassey Discusses 'No Jab, No Job' Policies

Ever since the commencement of the UK's well-publicised Covid-19 vaccination programme in December 2020, the various legal issues surrounding mandatory vaccination policies have been a source of rich academic debate amongst many Employment law commentators.

Although the vast majority of our domestic populace has now been vaccinated against the virus, there are still a significant minority who remain unvaccinated for various medical, political, ideological, & cultural reasons.

Against this backdrop - and with an increasingly large number of employers choosing to implement these policies - some interesting questions are posed about the risks and/or legal claims associated with this controversial practice.

In a recent and well-received lecture, Robert Lassey has sought to examine the types of claims and legal issues that are likely to arise in the context of these impositions, before going on to consider the tactics for addressing such claims in practice.

The slides from that lecture are available here.
