COVID-19 Vaccine & Hiring: What You Should Know

Getting the COVID-19 vaccine may offer additional protection for you, your family, your friends, your co-workers, and your community. While we understand getting the COVID-19 vaccine is a personal choice, you should know getting vaccinated may improve your chances of being hired. If you're wondering how do recruiters find candidates in a post-pandemic world, vaccination status may be one of the criteria an employer searches for.

While laws differ from state to state, an employer can have a vaccinated-only policy. Per SHRM, some state laws prohibit employers from requiring vaccines as a condition of employment. In other states, employers are able to mandate that all employees receive the COVID-19 vaccine, with exceptions for medical and religious accommodations when reasonable.
