Do any federal or state laws protect employers from liability if they mandate vaccination or offer a COVID-19 vaccine to their employees?

Not at this time. Currently, if employers mandate vaccines and an employee has an adverse reaction, they could potentially have a worker’s compensation claim. That’s not to say that this stance might change or that with the release of the new Emergency Temporary Standards that this particular question could be addressed. It seems that if it isn’t directly addressed, it will likely be tested in court as the vaccine mandate for large private employers goes into effect later this year.
