Event Overview

AIJA is pleased to partner with the American Bar Association Labour and Employment Law Section to present a new event taking place on Tuesday, 29 June from 18:00 to 19:30 CEST. This time the theme will centre around "Navigating the Return to the Office During the COVID Vaccine Era".

As we enter a new phase in the battle against COVID-19, questions abound for employers, employees, and their counsel.  Can an employer require employees to receive a vaccine, or ask whether they did?  Can employees refuse to be vaccinated?  The answers are often unclear and vary widely within and among countries. Join a panel of European and American lawyers for a discussion on these and other critical evolving questions affecting the rights and duties of employers and employees. 

Following the panel there will be a networking session.  Don’t miss this rare opportunity to get to know employment attorneys from around the world.

 We look forward to seeing you there!
