As a result of continuous coronavirus developments, most companies in the Nordics and elsewhere have and are still experiencing sick employees, voluntary as well as imposed quarantines or closure of activities etc. But what measures can companies take to prevent the spread of coronavirus at the workplace as vaccination efforts are increasing?

Several new questions have and continue to arise in relation to how companies should deal with the spread of coronavirus towards employees. As vaccines are being approved and distributed, especially one question needs clarification - whether companies can require employees to get vaccinated against coronavirus in order to work or go on business trips and which consequences refusal from the employees’ side can trigger.

We have taken a closer look at this question in the Nordic countries.
