Training Overview

Big mistakes you might be making about vaccination status confidentiality

Learn how to comply with the new OSHA mandate without violating HIPAA and ADA privacy requirements.

OSHA’s new emergency temporary standard (ETS) requires that employers mandate that employees provide them with their vaccination status. Does this violate the ADA or HIPAA?

You need to understand how to protect information on your employees’ COVID-19 vaccination status and know if it is ever appropriate to reveal it to colleagues. HIPAA, ADA, and GINA all play roles in defining what details require confidentiality, and the OSHA ETS imposes additional restrictions.

With deadlines looming, you have little time to comply without incurring fines. Even as some attributes of the ETS are challenged in court, your privacy obligations persist.
