The Practical Employment Law Podcast: New Mask Guidance Issued by the CDC

In a surprise move on Friday, May 14, the CDC issued new guidance indicating that individuals who have been fully vaccinated no longer need to wear masks or social distance in most settings.  Several states and municipalities, including Ohio, have quickly adopted the CDC’s new approach and more are likely to follow.  This has left employers with a lot of questions, including:

  • Can I continue to require masks?
  • If I no longer require masks for vaccinated employees, can I ask who has been vaccinated?
  • Can I or should I verify the vaccination status of employees?
  • What issues might come up when I change the mask policy?
  • Do I need to involve the union in these issues?

Listen to the new episode of The Practical Employment Law Podcast for insights on these questions and more.
