Consultation is King in Mandating Vaccination
Dec 15, 2021
Hello and welcome to Episode 92 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
Today we’re unpacking a recent decision from The Fair Work Commission about BHP’s vaccination mandate requirements and what this decision tells us about the FWC’s stance on vaccination.
Effectively we need to ensue the direction is lawful and reasonable under the circumstances and we need to genuinely consult with our teams before introducing a vaccine mandate.
At the same time we’re seeing an increase in vaccine status related unfair dismissal claims hit the commission, and it will be interesting to learn the outcomes of these in due course.
If you’d like to connect with other businesses who are also juggling the challenges of teams, I’d love you to join us inside our free Facebook Group, HR Support for Australian Businesses, so I can learn more about what’s working for you and any challenges you might be having.
