In the article “How Will ‘Vaccine Passports’ Impact Business Travel?” labor and employment associate Alexa Miller spoke to The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) about what employers should know regarding proof of vaccination and quarantining if employees travel for work.
Miller explained that employers could request or require employees to submit proof of vaccination if there is a legitimate business reason for doing so.
