Lawyer warns government could ultimately make COVID-19 jab mandatory
A HR lawyer believes the government will eventually mandate the COVID-19 vaccine as employees question whether they will be forced to get the jab.
NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has insisted COVID-19 vaccination will remain voluntary, but there remains a lack of clarity over whether businesses can force it upon workers.
HR Lawyer Michael Burns told Ben Fordham the government “is running a mile from the issue”.
“This idea from government that there won’t be mandatory vaccinations in some industries, I just think that’s wrong.
“I think ultimately they’ll walk back from that. I think, at this stage, they just don’t want to spook people by suggesting that vaccinations might, in any sense, be mandatory.”
