Mandatory vaccinations and employment conditions

New information sheet on mandatory vaccinations and conditions of employment for the community managed mental health sector

Mental Health Coordinating Council recognises community mental health organisations and workers face complex considerations around employment conditions and the COVID-19 vaccination.

To help provide guidance around these and other complex issues surrounding the vaccine and conditions of employment for employees and volunteers we have produced a sector-specific Mandatory Vaccination Information Sheet.

This free, new resource answers questions specific to our sector.

  • What are the legal requirements for mandatory vaccines?
  • Are there privacy obligations to consider?
  • Can contracts be varied to add provision for vaccine?

We know vaccination against COVID-19 is critically important, particularly for those who work in the mental health sector.

This new resource is available for free and includes a range of other useful resources to refer to for help in this complex area.
