Minister rejects mandatory worker vaccines for wider New Zealand

A RNZ article.

The government is not considering mandatory vaccines for the wider workforce, the minister says, but employers could write vaccination requirements into future employment contracts.

There are also steps that can already be taken by employers to require that some roles be performed by vaccinated workers.

Workplace Relations and Safety Minister Michael Wood told the Education and Workforce Select Committee this morning that current laws were enough of a safeguard to protect employees.
