  • Should only the unvaccinated be singled out for testing?
  • How often will an employee be required to test?
  • On what grounds can an employee refuse the test?
  • Can you discipline or terminate an employee for their refusal to comply with the testing policy? Should you?
  • How do you avoid a Human Rights complaint?
  • What mistakes to avoid in creating a policy?
