Good Employment Practice Guide | Mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy
Are you unsure about how the Mandatory COVID-19 vaccination Policy affect your workplace?
As we are all aware, the State Government announced a mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy for the WA workforce. This policy; which affects majority of occupations and workforces in WA, has been introduced in a phased approach.
The policy follows the existing mandates in place for workers in high-risk industries, including those interacting with people at an increased risk of being infected with COVID-19, or those who are vulnerable to the impacts of COVID-19, or where it is necessary to avoid catastrophic risk to the safety of the community.
The policy’s phased approach is to apply mandatory vaccinations for more industries in WA, as well as a requirement for other critical workers to be vaccinated to attend work in the event of a lockdown or similar restrictions.
