Janay Stevens, an associate in the Columbus office, and Michael Griffaton, of counsel in the Columbus office, authored an article for the Columbus Bar Association titled "Mandatory COVID Vaccinations: There is No Vaccine Against Legal Risk." The article discussing potential legal risks for employers who require employees to receive a vaccine for COVID-19.

The article states:

"At some point, there will be a vaccine for COVID-19. For employers, the question becomes whether they can require their employees to get vaccinated as a condition of employment once a COVID vaccine is available. The answer is generally yes, but employers must be aware of the potential legal risks and practical considerations in mandating vaccination for their workforce."
