COVID-19 vaccination and employment

The New Zealand government has released guidelines to help employers and employers understand their rights and obligations when it comes to vaccinations in the workplace.

To be clear there is no expectation for an employee to be vaccinated and they are not required to inform their employer of their vaccination status. However this may mean that an employer will assume that such an employee has not been vaccinated.

Although an employee cannot be fired for not being vaccinated they have duties removed from them if an employer deems any part of their role can only be carried out by a vaccinated person. An employer cannot request a non-vaccinated individual to be vaccinated.
