YWCA Clark County COVID-19 Vaccination Employee Policy
YWCA Clark County is committed to protecting the health and well-being of our employees, volunteers, their families and members of our community against the coronavirus (COVID-19). This policy is based on guidance and recommendations issued by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in addition to various departments affected by the federal mandates, state mandates, county mandates, and other public health authorities. The COVID-19 vaccine has been determined to be a safe and effective measure for preventing COVID-19 infection.
YWCA Clark County requires all employees to obtain and maintain up-to-date COVID-19 vaccinations. YWCA Clark County believes this is an important measure to protect the health and safety of employees, participants, clients, family members and those who visit the workplace from COVID-19 infection.
All employees must maintain and provide written proof to YWCA Clark County that they have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by November 1st, 2021, with the exception to employees under the Washington state mandate that need to be vaccinated by October 18th, 2021. Employees must provide proof of vaccination to Human Resources. Note that employees should not provide proof of vaccination that includes any genetic information (e.g., family medical history). Any documentation received by an employee will be kept confidential to the extent required by law.
New hires must present proof of COVID-19 vaccination upon first day of employment. Applicants, will be notified of requirement at time of application and in formal offer letter.
This is policy is mandatory except for employees with a documented medical and/or religious reason for not receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. The process for seeking an exemption or reasonable accommodation based on a medical and/or religious reason is addressed below.
This policy remains in affect until COVID-19 and all variants are no longer considered a public health threat by our local, state, and national health leaders. Unless deemed necessary by OSHA, Labor and Industries, or other governing authorities.
Requests for Exemptions as a Reasonable Accommodation
An employee or job applicant (I) who is disabled, pregnant, nursing or who has a qualifying medical condition that contraindicates a COVID-19 vaccination, or (II) who objects to being vaccinated on the basis of a sincerely held religious belief, observance or practice may request an exemption from this vaccination policy. All requests should be directed to Human Resources.
YWCA Clark County will engage in an interactive process to determine if an exemption as a reasonable accommodation may be appropriate. This process will involve the exchange of information about the reasons for the request (e.g., information regarding the disability) and identification of appropriate workplace accommodations (e.g., remote work, if possible).
An exemption as a reasonable accommodation may be provided so long as it does not cause an undue hardship for the organization or pose a direct threat to the health and safety of others. This determination will be made on a case-by-case basis. Any medical information concerning an employee’s or job applicant’s limitations and/or reasonable accommodation needs will be kept in strict confidence in compliance with applicable federal, state and local laws.
Employees and job applicants may request an exemption as a reasonable accommodation without fear of retaliation.
