TOOLKIT: Employee Vaccination Status Verification Process

To support our clients in navigating the revisions to the Cal/OSHA COVID-19 Prevention Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS), effective June 17, 2021, we have created several tools you can use to establish a process that best suits your business needs. It is important to note that an employer is not compelled to use any specific method of documenting employee vaccination status and is not obligated to require employees to submit proof of being fully vaccinated. Documentation is required for a “fully vaccinated” employee to work without a face covering indoors.  

Employers have two (2) options:

  1. Choose to not ask employees their vaccination status and treat everyone as “unvaccinated” or 
  2. Develop a documentation process and operate based on the vaccination status employees choose to provide to you.

Should you choose to move forward with a documentation process, the provided toolkit is developed to provide a sample framework, allowing employers to make business decisions around COVID-19 prevention measures in their workplace while ensuring the wellbeing of your employees.


The video below provides additional instructions on how best to utilize the documents in the toolkit.
