BUSA looks to court for clarity on mandatory vaccines


Business Unity SA (BUSA) plans going to court to seek legal certainty on companies’ right to require their staff to be vaccinated against Covid-19, as part of an effort to speed up SA’s vaccine rollout and ensure workplace safety, reported Business Day (25 October 2021)
“BUSA’s plans to apply to the high court for a declaratory order on workplace vaccine mandates, comes as a growing number of companies look to implement such policies. It comes, too, in a context in which demand for jabs has declined to a level where SA is now unlikely to achieve its target of vaccinating 70% of adults by December and is at risk of not reaching even 50% by year end.”
