Minimizing Legal Risk When Implementing COVID Vax Policies

DATE:  Thursday, June 10th, 2021
TIME:  12:00pm-1:00pm

As California’s public health guidance evolves, Community Health Centers (CHCs) with partially vaccinated workforce teams are revisiting their safety efforts to protect staff from workplace transmissions. While some have implemented mandatory COVID-19 vaccine policies, others have mirrored their flu vaccine efforts or are exploring incentive programs.  Join us for a 60-minute attorney-led webinar designed to help CHCs avoid employee discrimination litigation and regulatory penalties when enforcing mandatory vaccination policies or COVID-19 incentive programs.
The webinar will answer the following questions: 
If we mandate vaccines, what should/can we do if an employee refuses to get vaccinated?
What accommodations can we consider for employees who are unable to work remote and refuses a COVID-19 vaccine?
If we mandate COVID-19 vaccines, would we need to re-visit collective bargaining agreements?
How do we minimize our legal risk if we incentivize COVID-19 vaccines?  
Recognizing vaccines have been approved through Emergency Use Authorization, how do the pending lawsuits that challenge the legality of mandating EUA vaccines factor into our ability to mandate vaccines in the workplace?

  • Understand how much leeway CHCs have whenever mandating vaccination policies and providing accommodations
  • Identify common scenarios and workplace protocols that help minimize legal risk for CHCs
  • Learn key considerations that help create COVID vaccination incentives or voluntary vaccination programs

*Last year, in recognition of the tremendous financial stress members were facing and to ensure that important and timely information could be accessed with no barriers, CPCA elected to waive training fees for the entire membership year (April 1,2020- March 31, 2021) and offer all training at no cost. As we continue to work in this pandemic environment to provide members the support they need, we must also plan for the future while supporting community health centers in improving the health status of their communities through advocacy, education, and services. Which is why the Board of Directors approved a budget in February that reflects a reinstatement of training fees effective for trainings taking place on or after April 1, 2021. If you have any questions or concerns about this change, please email us at
