Event Details

As vaccination programs are rolled out in the Philippines, many employers are now thinking through issues regarding employee vaccination policies and programs.

Some of the questions we will address include:

  • Can an employer require its employees to be vaccinated?
  • Can an employer be liable if its employee suffers an adverse reaction to the vaccine?
  • Is an employer allowed to collect personal data from its employees (e.g., vaccination status) for its COVID-19 vaccination program?
  • If a company requires employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to report to work, what data privacy liability issues should a company be concerned about?
  • Can private entities procure COVID-19 vaccines for its employees?
  • Do private entities that procure vaccines for their employees have reporting obligations to the Department of Health?

NordCham Philippines supports this event and invites you to join the fireside panel discussion entitled "The COVID-19 Vaccine Rollout: What does it mean for Philippine employers?" this 26 May 2021 at 4:00 PM PHT / 9:00 AM UKT as representatives from Quisumbing Torres discuss key concerns about mandatory and voluntary policies, including privacy and general liability considerations.
