From: Dr. Hamilton-Stubbs, NAACP Virginia State Conference Health Chair
The Virginia State Conference of the NAACP Health Committee thanks the Richmond branch for partnering with the state health committee to help us make our community aware of the upcoming labor law webinar related to health.
People have voiced concern about employer mandates to get vaccinated. Others question what responsibility does the employer bear in making the work environment safe. We know that Blacks and people of color are disproportionately affected by the pandemic but what happens if the hospital sends the patient home to recover and a family member wants to be there to assist? These are important questions we hope to address during the February 16 webinar.
