Last week, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted full approval for the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. This development, along with the recent surge of COVID-19 and the Delta variant, has led many companies to consider implementing vaccine mandates, offering vaccine incentives (such as enhanced paid time off, raffles, gift cards, and even pay raises), imposing surcharges or higher healthcare premiums on the unvaccinated, and other strategies to encourage employees to get vaccinated. When considering these strategies, employers must navigate a wide variety of employment and benefits-related laws to avoid lawsuits and penalties.
