Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccines for me, says SPC

August 12, 2021

Welcome back to another episode, and a controversial one.

On the 5 August 2021, well-known Australian fruit and vegetable processing company SPC has announced that it will mandate the COVID-19 vaccination for all staff.

The announcement is not without controversy with many commentators are suggesting that this could become Australia’s legal test case which could flesh out what is and isn’t “reasonable” with respect to an employer’s direction to an employee for a mandatory COVID-19 vaccination and may set a new standard for Australia moving forward, including for other vaccinations.

Amelia and Cameron dive into the legalities behind the decision and what that could mean for employers and employees.
