TARANAKI Connect: Vaccinations and impacts in the workplace

We invite you to join the Taranaki Branch Committee for another Café Connect catch up. HR Cafe Connects are for people professionals to connect for some conversation, collegiality, problem sharing and solving and professional networking opportunities. This is a great way to make new local contacts.

Come and join us for an open informal discussion of the various people impacts and issues we are likely to face in the workplace with the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccinations in NZ this year.

Explore the potential minefield of attempting to balance individuals’ rights with the obligation to keep all your people safe, particularly where they need to travel overseas, or where there may be groups of vaccinated and non-vaccinated people who may refuse to work beside each other for various reasons. How might we resolve these issues?

Consider the legal implications of the Privacy Act, the Health & Safety at Work Act, the Employment Relations Act, and MFAT advice for travelling overseas, and how to balance all of this in your HR role.

Note that this is not a debate of the pros and cons of vaccinations and will not provide any medical information.

Please come along, join us for coffee and share your thoughts on this topic with other HR professionals. Bring along your thought-provoking questions specific to your workplace and industry, discuss and share these with the group, and take away some alternative perspectives and new ideas, although there may well be more questions than answers at this stage.

This is a free event, however as Café Green Door is providing the venue, please support them by purchasing a drink on their premises. We look forward to seeing you there. Please register early, as spaces are limited.
