NEWSLETTER: SA Public Sector – Issue 43

11 March 2021


Welcome to Issue 43 of the SA Public Sector Newsletter. The Fair Work Ombudsman (FWO) and Safe Work Australia (SWA) have released updated guidance for employers and employees about the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine in the workplace. As a guiding principle, both the FWO and SWA have stressed that the overwhelming majority of employers should assume they will not be able to require their employees to be vaccinated.

In further vaccine news, the Department of Health has published a plan to ensure the COVID-19 vaccination program includes members of Australia’s culturally, ethnically, and linguistically diverse communities, to ensure a high uptake of the vaccine.
