Labor & employment partner Doug Brayley continues to be sought after for his insights on Covid vaccine mandates and workplace protocols by both Ropes & Gray clients and the national news media. In the October 7 DealBook newsletter and an October 8 New York Times article that appeared in print regarding the White House’s campaign for vaccine mandates and OSHA’s rule-making process, Doug noted that employers are grappling with mandates as well as staffing issues. “Some companies are looking at it and saying, ‘Great that those employers had a good experience. I don’t know if we’ll have the same experience,’” he told DealBook. “Or, they may look at it and say, ‘Great, they had a 91 percent vaccination rate, but we are so thinly staffed we couldn’t possibly lose 9 percent of our work force.’”
