Training Overview

Who’s vaccinated in your organization? Who caught Delta? Discover current ADA and HIPAA confidentiality requirements.

As the Delta variant surges across the country, employers and employees demand to know who has been vaccinated and who is infected. With the full FDA approval of the Pfizer vaccine, the impending widespread rollout of booster shots, and an increasing number of vaccine mandates, organizations are requesting more information about COVID-19 vaccination status.

Most employee health maladies are easy to keep confidential, but the infectious nature of COVID-19 creates uncertainty for employers. They feel a need to protect colleagues by revealing suspected and confirmed cases in the workplace.

You need to understand your rights and obligations related to sensitive employee health information under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
